Woodstock Trolley Rides During The Holidays

Downtown Woodstock will enjoy the addition of a free trolley on Fridays and Saturdays thru the Holiday season. There is also a chance that the trolley could become a long-term fixture for downtown if ridership proves popular. According to the Cherokee Tribune, on Wednesday the Woodstock Downtown Development Authority (WDDA) unanimously voted in favor of a lease with Cherokee County to use the government’s owned trolley previously used in Canton.

According to WDDA Executive Director Billy Peppers, the trolley will operate for about 4 hours on Friday and 6 hours on Saturday from November 30 thru December 27 at an estimated cost to the Authority of about $2,000. The route for the wheelchair-accessible trolley has not been finalized but could reach out to Woodstock neighborhoods as far away as River Park and The Woodlands to see if there is interest in a pick-up or drop-off at their respective clubhouses.

The hope here is that the Trolley will prove popular and will become a nice addition to the charm of Downtown Woodstock.

    I hope that Woodstock ga will get the trolley back up running particularly as new mall opens in July
    You need to publish more info about it and the route it runs with time schedule. Woodstock needs all
    the transportation that it can get.

      Hi Ruth, we agree that the trolley would be a great addition if the city council decides to put it back in use. We will of course be on the lookout for any trolley updates and will post all information here, so check back often.

    We saw the Trolley for the 1st time today! Not only would it be a FANTASTIC addition to our city but also a sense of freedom for people with disabilities & their families seeking a (destination) community to work & play. When will the routes be outlined?
