Molly the Trolley has picked up speed in the past few weeks and on Monday added a digital locator system. 

 

According to the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or The T, the enhancements follow five years of the trolley system’s free shuttle service that circulates around 12 Molly stops in downtown Fort Worth. 

 

Molly service is operated by The T in conjunction with partners Downtown Fort Worth Inc., Sundance Square, and the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau.

 

In September, The T increased Molly’s frequency at stops to every 10 minutes instead of every 15 minutes by adding another trolley to the loop.

 

The latest enhancements mean The T operates a trolley system providing real-time information on computer desktops and digital devices.  Whether waiting at a stop or in a hotel, restaurant, shop or office, riders may find out when the next trolley will be at any of Molly’s stops.

 

“Even though waits for the next Molly are short, we believe that knowing if a trolley has just left and when the next trolley will arrive are important to enhance the positive experience of using a circulator service like Molly,” said Paul Ballard, president/CEO of The T in a news release.

 

Arrival times and locations of the next Molly are available at www.nextbus.com. Additional information on various ways to use the Molly Next Bus locator system available at www.the-t.com.
