PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — A recent price hike in Pigeon Forge Trolley tickets has allowed the service to run year-round. 

Beginning Jan. 6, 2019, the North and South Parkway winter trolley route will operate from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily and remain in effect until the trolleys resume full operation on March 12, 2019.
