The Woodlands Town Center Trolley
The Woodlands Township resumes full service for the Town Center Trolleys beginning on Wednesday, July 1, 2020. Current capacity will be limited.
For COVID-19 safety measures, trolleys are disinfected throughout the day and will undergo a thorough disinfection process at the end of each service day. All drivers are required to wear face coverings. Passengers are also highly encouraged to wear face coverings.
The Woodlands Township has enhanced the Town Center Trolley service to include service to the Hughes Landing area. Four trolleys will operate seven days a week and will circulate approximately every 10 minutes during peak operating hours around retail and office locations throughout the Town Center area. During off-peak operations (2 to 5 p.m. daily and 2 to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays), three vehicles are in continuous operation.
Employees, residents and visitors can park once and hop aboard the free trolley to popular retail, entertainment, and office locations. The trolleys provide transit service along an approximate 4.1-mile route connecting The Woodlands Mall, Market Street, Town Center, The Woodlands Waterway and Hughes Landing restaurants, hotels, businesses and residences.
The Town Center Trolleys are partially funded through Federal Transit Administration (FTA) formula grants.

The app can be downloaded for free in the Apple (IOS) or Google Play (Android) store and installed on any smartphone. After installation, select “The Woodlands Township” from the menu to begin use.
