Scottsdale Trolley route enhancements begin Oct. 26

Scottsdale’s free trolley service will debut a new Camelback route, adjusted Downtown route and increased frequency on the Neighborhood route beginning Monday, Oct. 26.

The changes are designed to provide better service to visitors, residents and businesses.

The new Camelback route will link riders between Scottsdale Fashion Square and Scottsdale Community College. Service will run seven days a week with 15 minute frequency and provide service to Villa Monterrey. Transfers can be made from the Camelback route to the Downtown Trolley route, according to a press release.

The modified Downtown route follows the perimeter boundaries of Scottsdale’s Downtown area, providing quick, convenient service seven days a week to the city’s popular art and shopping districts. The new route will offer increased frequency – every 10 minutes – and expanded service hours – running from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

“The route was changed in response to requests from merchants and supportive comments received at several public outreach events,” stated Transit Manager Madeline Clemann in the release. “By moving the route to perimeter downtown streets, this route will serve more residents, businesses and hotels more efficiently.”

Scottsdale Trolley’s Neighborhood route and Miller Road route remain the same.  Both routes offer daily service.

To board a trolley, wait at a Downtown Trolley sign or a Valley Metro bus stop along the route. Posted trolley stops downtown have maps and passenger information.
