It has been quite some time since I enjoyed the trolley rides. I decided to enjoy another ride and see a new boat house parked trolley's that do not run. I wonder what happened

The boats are there, but they are not operating. We were told by a Ranger that Harvey flood damaged them. However the road trolley is working. It is free and air conditioned.

As a long time resident & fan of The Woodlands, I am wondering why this attraction is still being funded & operated. It goes nowhere & there is nothing to see. It’s a great idea in the wrong spot. Please move it to the lake!...More

The only public transportation at Woodlands. The landscape is great, and the frequency is surprisingly higher than expected. Also, the bus is great in the inside, and reminds old trolleys. Great for going around at night and enjoying Woodlands Waterway

No one really knows. The signage is not updated.

typically, there is a 20 wait between trolleys, but they have construction right now. They go as fast as they can
