Gig Harbor Trolley to Return in 2014

The trial run of summer trolley service in Gig Harbor will be returning next year after a successful 2013 season.

The trolley service met Pierce Transit's goals for ridership and revenue in its first season, and the board voted to bring the service back, but with a few changes.
