The Siesta Key Breeze trolley made its way through Sarasota and onto Siesta Key today. Effective March 20th, 2017, SCAT added the Siesta Key Breeze open-air trolley service to its county transportation routes. The cost is FREE and runs Monday thru Sunday 8am-midnight.

We all know traffic and parking is a little tough on Siesta Key, so this is a welcome addition to the island options for transportation. There are a few other options available like Uber, Lyft, the local Free Rides, and also many people love to bike, walk or scooter! There really is no need to have a car when you come to the island, there are plenty of fun ways to get around and explore the island. And these other options are always nice as they can consolidate the amount of cars on the road and are able to provide the guest with valuable island information and tips!
