We are towing vehicles!
Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Moose:
Parking IS and always HAS been a problem on Anna Maria Island. We, management, oﬃcers, employees, and volunteers experience the same problem as each of you. It is important to know that Anna Maria Island is composed of three (3) municipalities and collectively they oﬀer “free parking” throughout the island. And yes, parking is not always convenient to where you may be headed.
There is an alternative. Anna Maria Island has a free Trolley Service that travels daily up and down the island between Anna Maria Island and Coquina Beach, from 6AM- 10:30PM, about every 20 minutes.
One of the stops southbound is at the front door of our lodge. Northbound stops are at the corner of each street before and after Bridge Street. And, know that the largest number of parking spots are south of the lodge on Coquina Beach.
The trolleys are supported with the sale of advertising bought mostly by local merchants. Tens of thousands of dollars of excess revenue from advertising are distributed to many non-profit organizations on the island to help better the community. It becomes your “cool ride” on a hot day.
One of our loyal volunteers has been promoting the use of the trolleys for years, and he often refers to it as the MTA… the Moose Transit Authority. Although we are not permitted
to purchase advertising from the service, we do support the service it provides and those it serves.
So the next time you come to the island, take a trolley ride and make it part of your island experience, and maybe stop to shop at one of its advertising sponsors.
