The Fenton Trolley, provided by the Mass Transportation Authority (MTA), takes visitors and residents across Fenton and surrounding areas. 

The trolley service started in mid-September, during the St. John Applefest, which ran from Sept. 15-18. According to MLive, there is free admission onto the trolley until Dec. 4. It runs from 3-11 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturdays. Manager of Planning and Scheduling Paul Mattern said that the service hours and price will be evaluated as it continues. 

Residents can also download the MTA app for real time updates. According to ABC 12, it is an easier way for visitors and residents to travel around town on weekends. 

According to, the trolley service will have a number of stops at major shopping centers and restaurants. The stops include areas by North Leroy Street to Silver Parkway.
