The Coral Gables trolley will be running in Village West, making five stops, starting on Monday, July 27. This is great for Village West.
Along with the opening of the new visitor\’s center recently at the KROMA Gallery this is excellent news for the neighborhood. \”The Grand Avenue Route\” will come from the Douglas Metrorail station and head into the Grove.
The five stops are
▪ Douglas and Percival
▪ Grand Avenue and Douglas
▪ Grand Avenue and Brooker Street
▪ Grand Avenue and Jefferson Street
▪ Grand Avenue and South Dixie Hwy
The trolleys will pass by about every 15 minutes, Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm.
This is all mitigation due to the trolley folly, where the Gables built a trolley garage in the Village West neighborhood, which was deemed to violate the Civil Rights act of 1964 and took advantage of the Village West neighborhood.
The Center Grove is still set to have a trolley service hopefully by the end of the year.
