ONE OF THE BEST FREE THINGS TO DO IN LEXINGTON
Climb aboard Lexington’s eye-catching trolley bus service and tour Lexington’s scenic downtown in style! The COLT Trolley is Lexington’s popular free downtown circulator service, operated by Lextran.
COLT Trolley connects the Lexington Center and Rupp Arena with the Lexington Visitors Center, Thoroughbred Park, the main Lextran bus terminal, the University of Kentucky Campus, Transylvania University, the historic Chevy Chase neighborhood, and all the great restaurants, bars, theaters, and shops in-between. Hop on or hop off as you choose.
The clean and comfortable COLT Trolleys are a great way to enjoy Lexington’s nightlife, and although the trolley buses look historical, two of them are actually hybrid-electric; the first hybrids to be used for public transit in Lexington.
Each COLT Trolley bus holds approximately 25 people and can accommodate riders with disabilities.
