Transportation onthe Coral Gables Trolley is a FREE service provided by the City of Coral Gables with assistance from the Miami-Dade County Half Penny Transportation Surtax, the Florida Department of Transportation, and the Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The North/South Ponce de Leon Boulevard Route runs along Ponce de Leon Boulevard from the Douglas Metrorail Station to Flagler Street. This service runs every 10 to 12 minutes from Monday-Friday: 6:30 a.m. - 8 p.m., except the first Friday of the month which runs until 10 p.m.
In 2016, the Coral Gables Trolley began a new service with the Grand Avenue Loop. The new route begins at the Douglas Metrorail Station leaving Southbound on Douglas, Westbound on Grand Avenue, North on LeJeune Road and then it travels East on Granello back to Douglas Station. Passengers will be able to transfer to Trolleys going to Downtown Coral Gables at the Metrorail Station. Service is expected to be every 12 – 15 minutes from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm., Monday-Friday.
Beginning in 2017, the Trolley Service will operate on holidays, including:
New Year's Day
Martin Luther King Day
Friday after Thanksgiving
Trolley services began in November of 2003. The Coral Gables Trolley has proven to be a convenient, accessible and affordable transportation option. It is also a green transportation solution. The Trolley program has done what it was designed to do: relieve local traffic congestion, reduce parking demand, and connect downtown Coral Gables to surrounding areas through transit connectivity. Residents, commuters and visitors have enjoyed the free services provided by the Coral Gables Trolley system. Important is the connectivity between the Douglas Road Metrorail, the Flagler transit stop, and downtown Coral Gables allowing commuters to step off the trains and onto trolleys that take them to and from their work locations. In addition, the Coral Gables Trolley connects with the City of Miami Trolley on Flagler, Coral Way, and Grand Avenue. As communities search for solutions that reduce pollution, ensure open access, and lessen the dependency on foreign oil and car trips, the Coral Gables Trolley is one effective system that accomplishes all of the above.
After initial predictions that the Coral Gables Trolley would potentially serve 1,000 passengers daily, the program has been so successful that it is doing today five times the work. Every day, approximately 5,000 commuters enjoy the convenient use of the Coral Gables Trolleys.
Independent surveys and audits have confirmed that the program has reduced the number of vehicles driving to downtown Coral Gables by 750 cars per day.
