The Sun Trolley Expands Galt Link Route to Include Broward Health Imperial Point
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – The Downtown Fort Lauderdale Transportation Management Association (TMA) has partnered with Broward Health Imperial Point to expand its Sun Trolley service to include the hospital in the north leg of the Galt Link. This expansion took effect on Monday, January 21, 2013.
“Diagnostic services such as CT, MRI, ultrasound, X-ray and digital mammography are now just a trolley ride away for Galt Ocean Mile residents,” said Alice Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Broward Health Imperial Point. “The partnership also means increased access to dozens of physicians in various specialties whose offices are located on the hospital’s campus”.
The Galt Link Route is free for passengers and runs Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Galt Ocean Mile to Broward Health Imperial Point, with stops at Coral Ridge Mall and service to the Galleria Mall.
“We are so pleased to have Broward Health Imperial Point join our route destinations,” states Sun Trolley’s Executive Director, Patricia Zeiler. “The Galt Link Route continuously ranks as one of Sun Trolley’s most popular routes amongst Broward County residents and we are confident that adding Broward Health Imperial Point will only serve to increase ridership.”
Sun Trolley’s wave and ride service accommodated over 32,000 passengers in the month of December 2012 alone. Passengers simply flag the driver anywhere along the route to board. Once aboard, the fare is either free or 50¢ for one trip and $2 for all day, hop-on-hop off service. The Sun Trolley Tracker, a new mobile app for Android and iPhone users, provides real time location of all trolleys.
