Why Not Park and Ride?
Sit back and enjoy a stress-free, organized ride – for free!

By now we hope you’ve noticed the attractive trolley running through the streets of Florence. On July 17, the City of Florence in partnership with the Pee Dee Regional Transit Authority began offering an evening shuttle. The shuttle provides FREE weekday transportation from the Downtown Historic District to eight hotels located on Hospitality Drive and Radio Drive, and makes an additional stop at the Florence Mall. Living up to its name, Downtown Connect, the trolley service is doing just that, connecting visitors to our beautiful downtown area.
The service runs Monday through Thursday from 5:30 pm until 10:30 pm, and on Fridays from 5:30 pm until 11:30 pm. The shuttle picks up non-stop, every 30 minutes. It will also make stops at FMU Performing Arts Center and the Florence Little Theatre when performances are being held.
Locals now have a better way to get around town with the trolley service, too! With all the festivals and events going on downtown throughout the year, there’s never been a better time to climb aboard. No more driving in circles looking for a parking spot. Get front door, curb service with Downtown Connect!
