A little bit about The Link
Metrobus expands hop-on, hop-off transit route formerly branded The Trolley Line
Expanded partnership means extended service hours, more destinations and a new name
Starting June 23, Metrobus will offer a new and improved hop-on, hop-off service known as "The Link". Formerly branded as "The Trolley Line", The Link will connect downtown, Signal Hill and Quidi Vidi Village with stops at numerous attractions and hotels within the service area.
The seasonal service is made possible through a private-public partnership; partners include Parks Canada, Johnson GEO Centre, Provincial Historic Sites, Railway Coastal Museum and the City of St. John's.
"We have seen great success with The Trolley Line over the past 4 seasons," says Metrobus General Manager Judy Powell. "With the addition of more partners, we are able to expand our service hours, reach and frequency."
The Link will operate seasonally from late June to late September. A day pass for an individual is $10 ($25 for a group of up to five people) and allows customers to “hop-off” at any stop along the route, browse around and then hop back on the next Link bus to move to another attraction. There is also a two-day $15 option allowing a customer to hop-on, hop-off The Link for two consecutive service days. Regular Metrobus fares can also be paid each time a customer boards The Link; a great option for those only travelling one or two stops.
Visitors and residents will find stops for The Link near Signal Hill National Historic Site, The Johnson Geo Centre, Quidi Vidi Village, The Commissariat Provincial Historic Site, Newman Wine Vaults Provincial Historic Site, The Railway Coastal Museum, and along Water Street in downtown St. John's.
