Jacksonville Transportation Authority discontinues Beaches Trolley

JTA has discontinued the seasonal Beaches Trolley and is expected to announce a new partnership with Beachside Buggies as a replacement.

The Beaches Trolley used to run from South Beach Regional Shopping Center to Atlantic Blvd. between May and September.

It ran Friday and Saturday nights from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. and on select holidays, including Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day.
