Public transportation is coming to Everglades National Park.

A new trolley service that launches Saturday will link Homestead with Everglades and Biscayne National Parks.

Free trolley rides from downtown Homestead to visitor centers within the two national parks will run every weekend from January to April. The route includes a stop at the beach at Homestead's Bayfront Park.

The trolley stop at Homestead's Losner Park connects to Miami-Dade County bus routes.

The National Park Service, the city and the National Parks Conservation Association collaborated on the trolley service.
