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.
