The transit center has been under development for nearly two years. The more than 20,000-square-foot facility has lots of space indoors as well as 10 new trolley berths. A dedicated lane of traffic will also allow for easy passenger loading and unloading.

Pigeon Forge said its trolley system operates year-round and is the third-largest rural transit system in the United States -- transporting more than 3 million riders yearly along six routes during peak season.
