Hilton Head Island Trolley
Getting around Hilton Head Island is a breeze, thanks to our seasonal trolley service! Running every 30 minutes from July through mid-October, The Breeze carries passengers between Coligny Circle and Shelter Cove (from both Shelter Cove Towne Centre and Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina - See full list of dedicated stops below). For just $1, passengers enjoy fast, easy access to Hilton Head Island’s beaches, shopping, resorts, restaurants, and attractions. Take a break and take the trolley around Hilton Head Island this summer!
The Breeze trolley service operates every 30 minutes between 9am - 7pm daily, except for Tuesdays when service is extended to 10pm for the Harbourfest fireworks. Tickets can be purchased and trolleys can be tracked in real time using The Breeze Trolley App. Tickets are $1 per person, per ride, and children under 43” ride free. Seasonal trolley service runs until October 14, 2018.
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.
