The north route, serving Gloucester Industrial Estates along 56 avenue, is no longer under development as service started on Monday June 24. The bus service will begin at 6 a.m. and end at 6 p.m. The cost will be $2.50 each way.

The south route has been running for a few weeks and the ridership is increasing day by day as the word spreads.

“The community loves the trolley on the road and so do the local businesses,” said spokesperson Michelle Evans.

“We have had huge support from several local businesses. We have companies offering reimbursement of rider tickets for shopping in their stores. Residents of Pioneer Park love the trolley picking them up to take them into town to do some shopping or to grab a quick bite at the local restaurants.”
