Scenic 30a Trolley!!!

There have been alot of questions and thoughts about the 30a Transportation Guru and his upcoming plan for a Trolley service on Scenic 30a. We will soon be launching a website to help answer those questions. Until then please read the below article which was recently in the Walton Sun here.


Transportation guru hopes to bring trolley service to 30A

John Finch says running a trolley service on 30A would benefit the entire community.

“One trolley running on 30A can keep up to 30 cars off the road at any given time,” said Finch. “That would be huge.”

Finch, who has owned Sunshine Transportation since 2004, said this is a win-win situation for everyone involved.

The proposed trolley service would run up and down the 30A corridor on a set schedule and would offer its riders an unforgettable experience. The trolleys would be brightly painted and equipped with air-conditioning, bike and surfboard racks, flat-screen TV’s, and music.

“The trolley’s are going to be amazing,” Finch said, walking around his Santa Rosa Beach based facility. “This isn’t just a ride. It’s going to be an experience.”

One of the biggest selling points of Finch’s idea would be the ability for visitors to traverse 30A and go shopping in the various communities without having to get in and out of a car and worry about finding parking spots.

Finch also noted the trolley service could help to cut down on drunk driving.

“Since we have a lot of weddings in the area, people are out celebrating and having a good time,” Finch said. “So instead of jumping in their car, they can take the trolley back to their condo.”

Implementing a new service to this degree can be a daunting task, but Finch said the first trolley could be on the ground in a month. He added said he has received nothing but positive support from the community and local businesses.

"I have already spoken to the Friends of Scenic 30A and the Tourist Development Council," Finch said. "They both seem really excited about the idea and would like to be on board with the program."

He added that businesses which choose to be a part of the trolley program would be eligible to place their logos on the exterior of the trolley in addition to having promotional videos played on the inside.

“This is really going to allow us to get people out,” Finch said. “They are going to be able to experience the different communities that we have to showcase in our area.”
