This years Block Party will go back to it's roots and be held on the Palm Island NW cul-de-sac on the middle island of IE. Leave your cars at home and board the Jolley Trolley (thanks for your support last month) for a FREE ride to and from the event on Palm Island NW.

This year the party coincides with Clearwater Community Day so be sure to come out and support your Island Estates Community. We are planning to have a variety of restaurants providing samples of their food, plus local craft beer vendors and wine (cash bar). The fabulous sounds of our very own Studio 10 band will provide music. There will also be a variety of local vendors on hand who support island residents.

*** GOOD NEWS UPDATE - The Jolley Trolley was awarded the 5 year contract. Thanks for everyones help

Clearwater Jolley Trolley in jeopardy of losing contract with PSTA for Coastal and Beach routes!

Island Estates & Clearwater Beach Communities:

Notice and request for action. Come show your support!

The Jolley Trolley is a community asset that has been serving our locals and visitors with outstanding service for over 30 years.  Recently, PSTA went to bid on trolley services and selected an out-of-state transit company to provide service in North County.  The Jolley Trolley has provided a consistent, reliable and entertaining way to traverse to and from our wonderful beach and has truly become a tourist staple in the City of Clearwater. 

The decision by the selection committee will go to the PSTA board on February 22nd at 9:00 a.m. and we are asking you to come out and show your support.

There will be no need to speak at the meeting as the Jolley Trolley team has identified a strong selection of speakers from the industry and coordinated their messages to ensure maximum impact.  We are asking that you arrive by 8:45am to sign over your time to allow these representatives to have the maximum 10 minutes to speak each.  We would then ask that you attend this meeting and show our support in mass for this group.

The current status and future potential is strong for this company.  The recent addition of the Coastal Route has provided even more opportunities for visitors of our surrounding cities to have another transit option to the beach.  The Jolley Trolley has been an incredible partner within the Chamber and has historically worked with the County and City to manage everyone’s needs.  We have unique transportation issues within our City and having a partner on board that has been involved with those conversations for decades is an invaluable asset.  We hope that you will help us in our effort.
