Breeze Trolley Season on Hilton Head starts April 1
Bluffton, SC – March 9, 2023 – The 2023 Trolley Season on Hilton Head Island officially starts at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 1. The service will run every day through Labor Day (September 4) from
1 p.m. to 10 p.m. (and until 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays). The Breeze is scheduled to serve each stop every 30 minutes. The 2023 season marks the service’s sixth season of operation.
The Breeze will again be serving two routes: The South Island Route will utilize full-size trolleyvehicles connecting the Coligny Beach/South Island area with the Shelter Cove area including
several stops in-between. Major destinations along this route include Coligny Beach Park, Coligny Plaza, Lowcountry Celebration Park, the South Forest Beach resorts and businesses, the
Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, the resorts and businesses along Pope Avenue, Park Plaza, the Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort, the Village at Wexford, Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina,
and Shelter Cove Towne Centre.
The Mid-Island Route will again utilize shuttle vehicles to connect people in the Shelter Cove and Folly Field areas with transfers to and from the South Island Route. Major destinations along
this route include Shelter Cove Towne Centre, Hilton Head Resort, the Hilton Head Island Beach & Tennis Resort, Fiddler’s Cove, Island Club, Marriott’s Barony Beach Resort, the Westin Resort
& Spa, Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club, and the Island Links Resort. New to this route for 2023 is an additional trolley stop on Folly Field Road near William Hilton Parkway.
“Talking Trolley” Safety Enhancement
The Breeze has invested in an important new safety enhancement which will be especially beneficial in areas with heavy pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Each of the Breeze’s four trolleys
now has an “annunciator” system which alerts nearby pedestrians and bicyclists when the trolleys are turning. The system’s announcements are made in both English and Spanish.
“Safety is always our highest priority, and we all know how busy the pathways and intersections on the Island are – especially during the high season. We have invested in this new technology
as another way to avoid the potential for any incidents,” said Mary Lou Franzoni, Executive Director. “If we avoid even just one accident with the new ‘talking trolleys,’ it is well worth the
investment,” added Franzoni.
