b'We are swinging into spring with numerous improvements coming to the alwayspopular Pigeon Forge Mass Transit and Trolley Department, with incredible advances in everything that they offer. The Trolleys have always been the best way to get around the area, but the best has gotten even better with a Brand-New Trolley Station, located at Patriot Park in Pigeon Forge. The new building has a much larger front office and improves guests experience with additional space, kiosk machines to purchase trolley passes from, and ATMs for guest assistance. Every route will begin and end at the impressive trolley hub in the heart of the city. Along with the new building, they will be launching a brand-new App in late March which will bring better service and easy options to riders of the Trolley System. The app will give riders real time arrival times and mapping systems for every trolley in the area, as well as the ability to purchase day passes and ride tickets remotely for the trolleys. New automatic fare collection systems on every trolley will make it easier to board the trolleys and will accept exact cash payment, read the apps QR code or read a day pass card that can be purchased at the trolley station. They will also have seven new low floor trolleys, improving their ADA accessibility and making it easier for passengers with wheelchairs and mobile devices to load and unload from the trolleys. To download the app, simply search Pigeon Forge Mass Transit in the app store and you are off on your smoky mountain adventure!!!We know how much everyone loves visiting Dollywood!
