See Y'all Again in 2022
Thank you for a record-breaking '21 season!
What a great record-breaking season we all had together!
Our ridership exceeded 52,100 passengers! -- shattering all of our previous seasons -- combined! We successfully launched a new route, and expended to 21 trolley stops. All the while, our passengers complied with the health and safety guidelines, including the federal mask mandate.
Be sure to follow @BreezeTrolley on Facebook and Instagram for announcements about the 2022 trolley season.
The previous trolley route, now referred to as the “South Island Route,” followed the same service hours, routing, and stops as the initial route since 2018, using two trolleys each day.
The new “Mid-Island Route” used one trolley (as depicted on our route map) and served portions of William Hilton Parkway, Folly Field Road, and Shelter Cove Lane. This route starts at our stop #1 at Shelter Cove Towne Centre, heads north on Shelter Cove Lane, turns left onto US 278, turns right onto Folly Field Road, turns around at the Westin Hotel, then returns southbound to the Towne Centre along the same route. Passengers from this new route can then 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 service ran 1 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 1 p.m. to Midnight, Fridays and Saturdays, reaching each stop approximately every 30 minutes.
To contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, The Breeze has implemented some new and innovative safety precautions, including frequent cleaning and disinfecting of the trolleys by our maintenance team, customized clear plexiglass modesty panels beside the trolley driver, "one-way" boarding and exiting procedures (with passengers boarding in front and exiting through the rear door), social distancing while riding, hand sanitizer, and requiring passengers to wear facial coverings.
Our passengers are asked to follow the following procedures:
- Board Using Front Door
- Practice Social Distancing
- Facial Coverings were Required in accordance with Federal Mandate
- Exit Using Rear Door
- Do Not Ride if You are Feeling Sick or have a Fever
The Breeze is owned and operated by Palmetto Breeze and The Lowcountry Regional Transportation Authority.
