Scottsdale Trolley Routes

COVID-19 Trolley Updates


Face coverings required by federal law

Effective Feb. 2, federal law requires face coverings on all public transit. 

The Centers for Disease Control issued an orderlinks to external site that requires face masks that cover cover both nose and mouth to be worn by all travelers (passengers and operators) while on or awaiting public transportation, including the trolleys and buses operating in Scottsdale. This new mandate is in addition to the executive orderlinks to external site by President Biden. 

Please note that although Governor Ducey issued an executive order on March 25 that rescinds his previous executive orders concerning the COVID-19 global pandemic, masks are still required while on buses and trolleys, which are federally funded. Masks are also still required at all transit stops.

Service is currently available from approximately 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., weekdays only, on the following routes:

  • 68th/Camelback (68CM)
  • Miller/Hayden (MLHD)
  • Mustang (MSTG) routes.


Service on the Old Town (OLDT) route remains suspended until further notice. 

Current trolley routes and schedules are available to view or print with the Valley Metro eTransit Book (PDF).

To help protect the health of trolley riders and operators, we have implemented the following social distancing protocols and cleaning procedures:

  • Riders and operators are required to wear face coverings over nose and mouth. The face covering must be worn while on the trolley and at trolley stops.  Operators will have a limited supply of face coverings for riders who do not have them. Children under two and riders with medical conditions preventing them from wearing masks are exempt.
  • Riders are required to enter and exit the trolley through the rear doors. The standing area behind the operator is blocked off. Riders in mobility devices will still be able to board using the front-door ramp and sit in securement areas.
  • Trolleys will be limited to 50% capacity (10 – 15 passengers, depending on the size of the trolley). When trolleys are at capacity, riders may need to wait for the next trolley.
  • Riders should maintain six feet of distance from other riders while on the trolley and at trolley stops. If possible, keep an empty row of seats between you and other riders.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after riding the trolley.
  • Trolleys will be cleaned a minimum of twice daily. High-touch areas will be wiped down with approved disinfectant, and seats will be sprayed with Lysol during shift changes and at the end of the day. Trolleys will also be cleaned whenever empty at a layover.
  • Please stay home when you are sick, and limit trolley use to essential or critical trips.
