FAQ

 


When can I Catch The Breeze?

The Breeze operates on a seasonal schedule, 7 days a week from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and until 10 p.m. on Tuesdays.  Trolleys arrive at each stop approximately every 30 minutes.


What do the trolleys look like?

The Breeze's green and gray trolleys combine the nostalgic features of the turn-of-the-century passenger street car with the modern technology of today's transit advancements. Be sure to listen for the "clang" of our authentic trolley bells.


How do I pay my fare?

Patrons can pay their fare in cash when they board the trolley, or you can prepay your fare using our BreezePass app.  You must have exact change as the Operators will not carry exact change.


What features do the trolleys have?

Each trolley has nostalgic wood interiors, a bike rack with space for two bikes, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and plenty of comfortable wood seating with additional space for standees. Our trolleys are 100% accessible with low floors and a deployable ramp for easy boarding. Each trolley has positions to safely secure wheelchairs and other ADA approved mobility devices.


Who is operating the trolleys?

The trolleys will be operated by our regional public transportation system, Palmetto Breeze, also known officially as the Lowcountry Regional Transportation Authority. Trolley Operators are well trained and also serve as ambassadors for Hilton Head Island and the Lowcountry.


What are the names of the trolleys?

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 Sr., also known as "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.
