The South Beach Loop trolley service was soft-launched on November 1, with full-service implementation on November 19, 2017. The new South Beach Loop trolley service replaced County-operated South Beach Local and City-operated Alton-West Loop trolley service.
To improve accessibility and facilitate boarding and alighting of passengers, a fleet of ten (10) new low-floor trolley vehicles operate along the new South Beach Loop trolley route. The frequency of service along South Beach Loop A & B is approximately 15 minutes, and along South Beach Loop via 10 Street is approximately 35 minutes. Hours of service of the South Beach Loop trolley service are the same as hours of service of other trolley routes (365 days a year, Monday through Saturday 6 am to midnight and 8 am to midnight on Sundays).
With the implementation of new South Beach Loop trolley route, the City is establishing free citywide trolley system, enabling travel from South Pointe Drive to 87 Street with as little as one (1) transfer.
