The Colonial Beach Trolley typically runs from late May through early September and makes about 20 stops along it's route. It got a late start in 2020 and 2021 due to you-know-what It's so much fun to ride! What a great way to get around town for just a little bit of money. There's plenty of space for all your gear, too. Shopping bags, kids, whatever you've got with you.
In early May 2020, operators Bay Transit (a division of Bay Aging) presented the idea of naming it! The choices were The Osprey Express, The Miss Ellie (referring to the awesome Ellie Caruthers of Doc's Motor Court fame) and The Beach Buggy.
The votes were tallied and the name chosen was The Osprey Express, a nod to the annual festival in town which made its debut in 2019.
Please note that the Trolley will not run its route during times when a Parade is taking place, such as the Potomac River Festival grand feature parade.
In 2021, the Trolley didn't begin running its route until July 3rd.
