Free seasonal LeeTran Downtown Trolley to resume
LeeTran’s seasonal downtown trolleys will resume Nov. 8.
Both the Blue and Gold Line trolleys provide free access to and from historic downtown Fort Myers. This allows a hassle-free way to enjoy the shopping, dining and entertainment the district offers without having to drive and park downtown.
The Blue Line runs through downtown Fort Myers. The route loops from the Oasis Condominiums to West First Street and McGregor Boulevard along First Street, then to Rosa Parks Transportation Center, Fowler and Second streets and then returns to the Oasis Condominiums.
The Gold Line connects North Fort Myers with downtown Fort Myers. The route runs from Rosa Parks Transportation Center, over the Caloosahatchee Bridge, and then loops back via North Key Drive to Beau Drive and Hancock Bridge Parkway, then back across the bridge, down First Street and returns to Rosa Parks.
The seasonal downtown Fort Myers trolley service continues until May 1, 2019.
