Free Summer Trolley in Edmonds

The Summer Trolley runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays through August, between downtown Edmonds and the waterfront.

The trolley is an expansion of the free Edmonds Holiday Trolley that runs during the winter holiday season.

“This will be a pilot project to test the case for considering ongoing trolley service in the future, for both upcoming holiday seasons and throughout our peak summer season,” said Patrick Doherty, the city’s economic development and community service director.

The ride will make four stops. Two will be in downtown Edmonds — just west of the Salish Sea Brewing Company and in front of the Edmonds Theatre. Two more will be at the waterfront — one near the Boat Lift at the Port of Edmonds, and one in front of Cascadia Art Museum at Salish Crossing. The trolley will be on a roughly 20-minute schedule.
