Hilton Head Island Trolley
The Breeze trolleys serving Hilton Head Island will commence their fourth season of service starting Saturday, April 10. The service is expanding to include a second route serving mid-Island residents and guests.
The service will run 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 1 p.m. to midnight, Fridays and Saturdays, reaching each stop approximately every 30 minutes. More information can be found at www.breezetrolley.com.
The existing trolley route, referred to as the “South Island Route,” will follow the same service hours, routing, and stops as last year using two trolleys each day.
The new “Mid-Island Route” will use one trolley (as depicted on the attached map) and will serve portions of William Hilton Parkway, Folly Field Road, and Shelter Cove Lane. It will start at the existing stop at Shelter Cove Towne Centre, head north on Shelter Cove Lane, turn left onto U.S. 278 (William Hilton Parkway), turn right onto Folly Field Road, turn around at the Westin Hotel, and then return southbound to the Towne Centre along the same route. Passengers from this new route will then be able to connect every half
hour to the South Island Route that heads toward Coligny Beach Park, the new Lowcountry Celebration Park, and the many stops in-between.
The names of each of our trolleys pay homage to history of transportation on the Island. One is named "Comet" after the Coastal Discovery Museum's Marsh Tacky horse Comet, to reflect the role these rare breed animals played in transporting islanders in the early days of Hilton Head. The second is named "The Alligator," as a tribute to island native Charlie Simmons, aka "Mr. Transportation," for his contribution to transportation before the bridge connected Hilton Head to the mainland. One of his freight boats was named the Alligator and was used to ferry goods and people between Hilton Head, Savannah and other mainland areas.
