This is a must do thing on tourist list, its very scenic during the day and very lightened in the dark. When u pass through the hotels and restaurants on this trip they are all lite up along with the trees. This ride is operational on weekends and holidays. Pls check site before u head for this ride to view... More

The trolley is convenient, but services stop at 9pm, way too early. If you take the trolley to the mall, you can't stay until the mall closes.

I live in The Woodlands and have used the trolley numerous times, great way to park once and get around the 'village' with no parking stress.

It's always fun to bring guests to the Woodlands Waterways and shopping mall. The trolley is free and a real foot-saver if you're doing alot of walking. It does a complete loop so you can get an orientation of the area as well. We also love the water taxis. It makes for a unique attraction and relaxing break.

This is the boat trip to NO where! And there is nothing to actually see. The Woodlands waterway is a very STERILE waterway. It is lacking any kind of charm. This boat ride would work if there was a Christmas Market, spring Market and something in the summer. Shops along the waterway like in Europe. Then you could ride the... More

Always have a great experience taking this trolley. If you've never been to it, definitively have to try it with the family!! If you live in the Woodlands, well, is good for once or twice per year. Best time to take the ride is when everything has X-Mas decor and weather is nice... but it seems to be very popular... More

Love the trolley feel, and the overview it gives of our Town Center to visitors to see what we have. It's much more interesting than a bus, for transportation. Have also used it when I need to get around but don't want to re-park. Drivers are nice, and it's air conditioned in the heat.

I'm confused at the title "Trolley" paired with the picture of the Water Taxi. The Trolley is a BUS, a cute, old-time looking bus. The boats are Water Taxis. It isn't the most exciting attraction in the world, but if you don't have a car and would like to get around to the local attractions, shopping, library, HEB grocery store,... More

The service has changed. Management has clearly changed. No longer can a person purchase a ticket for the day. It is a trip fee. If one gets off at one of the stops along the way, they have to pay full fare again. In addition, the signage is wrong. The boats don't start to run until 4 on Fridays, not... More
