The Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is expanding the weekend summer hours for the Beaches Trolley service.  For only $1.50 per trip, passengers can enjoy a hassle-free ride on JTA’s Beaches Trolley.  The Trolley operates along Third Street between South Beach Parkway Shopping Center and Atlantic Village Shopping Center.

“The beaches communities spoke; we listened and are implementing their suggestions.  JTA is extending the Beaches Trolley service to accommodate the needs of beach goers during the summer season peak hours.  We are also increasing frequency to allow our valued customers more time to enjoy the beauty and attractions that the beaches area has to offer,” said Nathaniel Ford, JTA’s Chief Executive Officer. 

Starting the weekend of July 4th the Beaches Trolley will extend its hours to the following:

• In honor of Independence Day, the Beaches Trolley will run every 30 minutes on July 4 from noon to 2:00 a.m.

• Starting July 5, 2013 every Friday extending throughout the summer season – 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., running every 30 minutes

• Starting July 6, 2013 every Saturday extending throughout the summer season – 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., running every 30 minutes

• Starting July 7, 2013 every Sunday extending throughout the summer season – noon to  6 p.m., running every 30 minutes
