Old Town Scottsdale is one of the city's top destinations and main attractions, and although the pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is relatively easy to travel on foot, the city offers visitors free trolley service. The downtown trolley provides service to major points of interest around downtown Scottsdale, including Old Town, the Marshall Way Arts District, the Main Street Arts District, Fifth Avenue Shops, SouthBridge, the Waterfront, and Scottsdale Fashion Square. Trolleys run approximately every 15 minutes and feature air conditioning, wooden seats, leather handhold straps, and tinted glass windows. These environmentally-friendly fleets even run on clean-buring biodiesel, making them a smart choice for travel if you're staying in or around downtown Scottsdale.
