Both days last weekend my family, out of town friends and I waited in the East End for the open air trolley. We had suitcases full of money, eager to spend it all in the West End. All of it. Like billions of dollars pouring out of our suitcases. The trolley never came. We were sad.
Both of those days I kept asking my LB friends on facebook for trolley updates, if they saw it, etc. All the info was confusing – none coincided with the two trolley routes I found on the official Long Beach website, including one that hasn’t been updated since 2014 [link].
Well today it’s all been figured out. Allison of Long Island Streets managed to find the trolley, took it for a ride and confirmed everything: The Trolley is only looping between the bus station on Park to Nevada in the West End. So there you go. If you live in the East End, no trolley for you. No spending those East End suitcases full of money at those West End restaurants and stores.
