Park Your Cares & Ride With The Bears: The Pigeon Forge Trolley

Pigeon Forge Trolley

Since 1986, Pigeon Forge’s Fun Time Trolley has provided a safe, affordable, and convenient form of transportation for all visitors and residents alike. With a fleet of more than 30 trolley buses, the trolley stops all throughout Pigeon Forge as well as a portion of Sevierville. Through the summer, the trolly operates from 8:00 AM – midnight, and in November and December from 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM.Patriot Park Sign

Visitors can leave their vehicle parked at the office at 186 Old Mill Avenue (just beside Patriot Park) and relax on the trolley as they enjoy all the sites and destinations like Tanger Outlets, Dixie Stampede, the Historic Old Mill, and even Dollywood!

All it takes is $2.50 for a wristband that allows you to ride all day and get off at any of the stops as many times as you like. If you just need a quick ride from one place to another, you can pay a small individual fare; it’s only 50 cents for North Parkway, South Parkway, Wears Valley, as well as both Dollywood and Dolly’s Splash Country, and it’s 75 cents for the Gatlinburg Welcome Center. When looking for a stop, just find a Fun Time Trolley shelter or a Trolley Bear sign at over a hundred locations.

You can find a trolley running frequently at all of the following routes:

  • Main Street: every 20-25 minutestrolley
  • Wears Valley: every 40-45 minutes
  • Dollywood: every 15-20 minutes
  • Dolly’s Splash Country: every 15-20 minutes
