Free Big Bear Trolley

Ride Free throughout the Valley on 3 Routes with Big Bear Trolley!

Free Big Bear Trolley

Mountain Transit's new Free Big Bear Trolley service will begin October 31, 2021! This transportation service will offer convenient and reliable transportation for both locals and visitors and help eliminate traffic congestion and car pollution in the Valley.

Traffic and illegal parking are a significant issue for Big Bear during the busy winter and summer seasons. We encourage everyone to leave their vehicles at their homes or rentals and hop on the Free Big Bear Trolley to navigate the town.

Three new routes have been specially designed to make accessing restaurants, grocery stores, retail shops, ski resorts, snow play areas, parks and work easy and efficient.
