Despite being a relatively small city, Doral has a lot to offer, and one of the best ways for tourists and residents to get around is via the Doral Trolley. Operated by the City of Doral, the Doral Trolley operates all through the week on separate routes, and the best part of all is that it's absolutely free! Many trolley systems all around the United States, and elsewhere around the world, come with fees and charges, but the Doral Trolley system is free for all, taking you quickly and conveniently to wherever you need to be.
Riding the Doral Trolley
Riding the Doral trolley couldn't be simpler. The trolley operates on four different routes all around the city. Each route is color coded on maps and at the various trolley stops, so it's easy to distinguish between each one. Route 1 is blue, route 2 is yellow, route 3 is green, and route 4 is purple. Each route has its own schedule and timings, but the most important thing to note about riding the Dotal trolley is that every route is totally free, allowing people to hop on and off as they please without needing to worry about paying any sort of fee or charge for a ticket or pass.
Anyone can ride the Doral trolley, but no animals are allowed on board except for service dogs. Smoking is not allowed on board the Doral trolley either. Food and drink are not allowed to be consumed aboard the trolley and all passengers are encouraged to respect the trolleys and treat them with care and respect. All arms and legs must remain inside the cars at all times as the trolleys can pass close by to trees and telephone poles.
In addition, passengers are encouraged to show respect for one another and perhaps offer their space to someone who is less physically able. Anyone with disabilities or pregnant women should be given priority for the seats on board the Doral trolley, and passengers are urged to keep the aisles and doors clear at all times to allow free movement of other passengers.
You should try to be at your Doral trolley stop at least five minutes ahead of the scheduled time as the trolleys try to keep to the schedule but can sometimes be a little early or late departing from each stop. You'll see each stop clearly labeled with information about the trolley route it serves, and be sure to check the trolley itself, which will have its route and destination clearly labeled, to ensure you're getting on board the right car.
If you're waiting for a trolley in the evening and it's quite dark around, try illuminating your cell phone and waving it as the trolley approaches to be sure that the operator has seen you. When you'd like to get off the Doral trolley, you simply have to pull the bell cord above your head. Buttons can be found by the windows too.
