Gulfport Trolley

The City of Gulfport leases the Special Events Trolley with the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) to serve the Gulfport community. The lease of the trolley serves as a mass transit vehicle to compliment the City’s Special Event transportation needs. The trolley serves as a City “looper” within the City of Gulfport including the Waterfront Redevelopment District. The vehicle will be used during numerous events to help residents and visitors see more of the City and enable them to park offsite during large scale events.
