The King Street Trolley transports riders between the King Street Metrorail Station and the Potomac River waterfront in Old Town Alexandria. The trolley runs daily every 15 minutes. The trolley has many stops for hopping on and off, exploring the shops, restaurants, and attractions found along Alexandria’s historic main street.
You can even load your bike on a special bike rack. If you see something interesting along the way, just pull the cord and the trolley will stop where it is safe. King Street Trolleys are free of charge and provide a convenient way of navigating the often-congested streets of downtown Alexandria not only for tourists but also for Alexandrians who work in Old Town and busy shoppers.
The trolley is part of the City’s continuing efforts to manage congestion and reduce mobile emissions by encouraging residents, commuters, and visitors to choose travel options outside of driving alone.
