CAROLINA BEACH -  The Wilmington Trolley Company would like to bring their charter and tours service to Pleasure Island. Wes Moore will present the idea and proposed plan to the Carolina Beach Town Council at their upcoming April 14th meeting at Town Hall at 6:30PM. Town Manager Michael Cramer said on Tuesday April 7th, the Trolley Company had not supplied specific advanced information and would present their proposal at the meeting. According to a "Business Plan for Pleasure Island Trolley" recently submitted to the Town it states, "The Wilmington Trolley Company has provided charter and tour service in New Hanover County since 1998. We currently operate six trolleys for hire. We also operate daily sightseeing tours of Wilmington, NC. Wilmington Trolley Company is a private locally owned company. Pleasure Island Trolley would provide much needed transportation around Carolina Beach and Kure Beach." The plans states, "Pleasure Island Trolley would provide trolley service and stops around the island. Proposed stops would be at the Boardwalk, Kure Beach Pier, four to five stops along Lake Park Blvd and other points of interest" and, "The PIT would operate seven nights a week from 5:30PM - 10:30PM. The cost to ride will be $2.00 per person (children under 3 years old will be free). The PIT would also generate money from selling advertisement on the side of the trolley." The company is based in Wilmington, NC at 304 Okeechobee Road. Currently there are multiple taxi services that operate on Pleasure Island as well as public transportation provided by the WAVE Transit system with buses that operate on a regular route schedule connecting to the Monkey Junction area with connections to the rest of New Hanover County. The Wilmington Trolley business plan states, "Pleasure Island Trolley would provide safe, reliable and fun transportation around Carolina and Kure Beach. The trolley will be open air style bus for passengers to enjoy the warm summer climate."
