Please bug Branson City Council to expand this beauty. Even for a while, there was a store that has even advertised the service. But I see that the store has been taken over by someone else. If the city officials has kicked the store out for advertising the trolley, shame on them. The reason why the service is still free is due to that Branson residents pay for it thru local, state, and federal taxes. One thing that the trolley should be doing is that it should be operating with the interior lights on at all times as Branson is known for having dark clouds on cloudy days. My las visit was before the 2018 Congressional election.

Branson's free downtown trolley is a great way to learn a little more of the history of Branson and have some historical sites pointed out. It is wheelchair accessible but if you are hearing impaired sit near the front as the driver does not use a microphone.

Each time I visit Branson, I feel I can't have a trip without a ride on this thing. I know there is a man who lives in the Branson area who wants build a bus system for the city. I think it would be a good use of public money to run this thing so that way it can serve all of Branson, it would stop at the theaters and would serve various restaurants up and down the strip. And to me, I think a bus system for Branson needs to be built. Also all operators driving these trolleys need to drive them with the interior lights on at all times.

Patrick, Thank you for your great feedback and your suggestion. Certainly a city-wide bus system or expanded trolley system would be a big project for the city, and one that has been brought up several times before as a worthy one. We can't predict the future, so maybe that will happen at some point. Be sure to keep coming to Branson and sharing your suggestions!

The Sparky trolley is free and that's a good thing. If you park at either end of the Branson Landing, it is a good way to get from one end to the other and the driver does tell some interesting facts. As far as taking the trolley routes, there really is not much to see so that would be kind of a waste. Not bad for some free transportation, but that's it.
