The long-awaited return of Old Town’s King Street Trolley is scheduled for next Monday, July 5.
According to a press release from the City of Alexandria, the trolley will resume daily operation on Monday, with a few modifications.
For starters, the trolley will run from the King Street Metro station to Market Square, outside of City Hall, with the 100 block of King Street converted into a pedestrian zone. A new stop will be added at the southeast corner of Market Square for better access to the Potomac River waterfront.
The trolley will run every 15 minutes from 11 a.m.-11 p.m., seven days per-week including holidays. The city said the simplified schedule will help make the trolley more accessible.
Trolley service has been suspended for a little over a year due to the pandemic. Face masks will be required for anyone riding the trolley.
The free trolley is a popular service in Alexandria, and extensions down Eisenhower Avenue have been considered. Later this year, DASH is scheduled to follow the trolley’s example and convert the entire bus network into a free service.
