Downtown Franklin Offers Free Trolleys From The Factory for #ShopSmall

The DFA and The Factory at Franklin are once again partnering with Franklin Transit Authority to provide free transportation during select Saturdays in November and December (2015) as part of the “Hop & Shop Trolley” initiative.

To help encourage friends and family to experience the joy of “shopping small,” the Hop & Shop ride–which is heated and handicap accessible–will make its first roll from The Factory parking lot at 10 a.m. on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28.

Participating passengers will enjoy festive music on the decked-out trolley, which will run from the front of The Factory in 30-minute increments.

The Hop & Shop Trolley will run Saturday, Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a short break around 1 p.m. for the FTA drivers.

The trolley will start at The Factory at 230 Franklin Road, and take its passengers down Main Street and Columbia Avenue, as well as businesses on the First through Fifth avenues of Main Street. There is no need to reserve space or tickets for the trolley. Simply park at The Factory, and look for the pick-up signs at the front of the building.
