Free Scottsdale trolley services get visitors all around town

No matter where you decide to visit, one thing we all research before traveling is how we are going to get around in that new place.

Whether it’s a bus system, a train or catching a cab, it’s important to know how you are going to explore the destination.  To assist our own visitors in getting around town, the city of Scottsdale provides free transportation on the Scottsdale Day Tripper trolley.

The Day Tripper runs daily through April 1 and departs from Scottsdale Fashion Square every 15 minutes from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., then drives north on Scottsdale Road, making stops at The Shops at Gainey Village, Kierland Commons, Scottsdale Quarter, the Scottsdale Promenade, and the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess.

Additional trolley service will run to and from Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and the following events: Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Auction (Jan. 10 – 18), Waste Management Phoenix Open (Jan. 26 – Feb. 1) and Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show (Feb. 12 – 22).

And, while the Day Tripper offers our visitors a great way to get to and from downtown and north Scottsdale, there are several other complimentary trolleys – all of which connect with the Day Tripper — that bring visitors to other parts of town.

The Paradise Valley Resort Trolley connects select Paradise Valley resorts with downtown Scottsdale; the Downtown Trolley brings visitors to the vibrant downtown districts; and the Talking Stick Trolley takes visitors from downtown Scottsdale to the Talking Stick Destination.

These trolleys give our visitors the opportunity to discover the area without the hassle and cost of paying for an alternative means of transportation, and the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau is elated to promote these services to our winter guests.
