In an effort to cut down on heavy tourist traffic on Hilton Head’s south end, a trolley service will begin running from mid-island to the Coligny area this summer.

Although a firm date has not yet been set, mid-July is the anticipated start of the service, which will run from Shelter Cove to Coligny Beach, a draft route shows.
