Increased LeeTran service to Fort Myers Beach is among seasonal changes that will begin January 5th. The Fort Myers Beach Trolley service will include two routes:

· Route 490 has three trolleys that will travel between Summerlin Square and Bowditch Park until 8:45 p.m., seven days a week.

· Route 410 has five trolleys that travel between Bowditch Park and Lovers Key until 10:20 p.m., seven days a week.

In addition, Route 50, which operates from Summerlin Square, (11390 Summerlin Square Drive), to the Southwest Florida International Airport, will add more frequent service Monday through Friday.

Also, the Fort Myers River District Trolley is currently running for season.
The Blue Line and Gold Line trolleys transport patrons for free to and from historic downtown Fort Myers from condominiums and hotels in both Fort Myers and North Fort Myers. This is the first year the trolley connects North Fort Myers to the River District.

· The Blue Line runs from the Oasis Condominiums to West First Street and McGregor Boulevard, then to Rosa Parks Transportation Center, Fowler and Second streets and then returns to the Oasis Condominiums.

· The Gold Line runs from Rosa Parks Transportation Center, over the Caloosahatchee Bridge, and then loops back via North Key Drive to Beau Drive and Hancock Bridge Parkway, then back across the bridge, down First Street and returns to Rosa Parks.
The seasonal changes extend through April 19.

· Route 150 will now stop running by 5:14 p.m. on both weekday and weekends. No additional service will be added for season. Route 150 runs from Lovers Key to Bonita Grande.
