The city of Greenville and Greenlink have expanded the downtown trolley routes. The service now includes four additional routes - Arts West, Augusta, Heart of Main and Top of Main.

Expansion of the trolley system resulted from the popularity of the existing downtown route, which transported 118,000 passengers in 2016, according to the city. With the goal of expanding service beyond the Central Business District, Greenlink purchased two additional trolleys and devised three new routes to provide access to restaurants, retail, parks and leisure activities. They also modified the existing Main Street route to better complement the new routes. Greenlink then worked with the city’s Public Works Department and SCDOT to identify and install safe trolley stop locations for the new routes.
