JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Beginning Monday, June 3, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority will cut back the Riverside Trolley's service area.
The changes were made so the trolley would be a quicker service for lunchtime customers, running every 10 minutes.
"Our customers spoke, and we listened. As a result of rider input, the
new Riverside Trolley has been redesigned as a lunchtime service that
will provide a faster, more cost-efficient service to lunch goers in the
Riverside and downtown areas," said Clinton Forbes, Chief of Transit
The trolley will continue to travel between Five Points and the Jacksonville Landing, but will no longer go north of the Landing to the St. James Building or east to the City Hall Annex Building, according to a release from JTA.
The times of operation -- 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. -- and fares will remain the same -- 75 cents per trip, except for those 60 and older, who ride free of charge.
To find out the location and schedule for specific stops, call JTA at (904) 630-3100 or (904) 630-3191 for TDD or visit www.jtafla.com.
