The trolley will be available to transport art walk participants from Longfellow Square in Portland’s West End to Washington Avenue on the East End. Board Secretary Virginia Rose commented, “With so many new venues across Portland, we are hoping to make travel between downtown and Munjoy Hill easier, and bring more art walk participants across the Franklin Artery in style.” The trolley will also allow for easier access to Old Port locations along Middle Street.
The trolley will run, free of charge, making stops along the following route: Longfellow Square, Congress Square, Monument Square, Washington Avenue & Congress Street, India Street & Middle Street, Exchange Street & Middle Street. The trolley will begin boarding passengers at 4:30pm at Longfellow Square and will repeat the route at 5:30pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm. Five minutes will be allowed for boarding at each of the stops – look for the trolley at the bus stops!
