I come to find out after waiting in the hot sun the tram only takes exact change. No Exceptions not even for a 7 month pregnant woman. I was then told I had to wait an hour for the next pickup. The tram should have a sign indicating exact change only so I wouldn't be wasting my time! Boardwalk also... More

A nice leisurely ride to view the boardwalk. You can catch the tram any place on the boardwalk by raising your hand. Discounted rate between 11AM and 4PM which allows multiple boardings . A nice way to enjoy the ocean breezes.

I thought the tram was wonderful. It saved me from having to listen to my little one complain about having to walk back to the hotel on the north side of the boardwalk. When we were about to board, I asked the conductor about the fee--would $3 cover a trip to the end and back? The conductor was very specific... More

Don't ride this until they change their policy. If you catch it in the middle and ride it to the end the will make you pay again to ride it back. We could find this posted anywhere on the tram or at the ticket booth. It cost us $6 per person to ride half way and back. Rip off!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a lovely experience riding the boardwalk tram today. My friend is handicapped and Rose, our attendant on the tram was very attentive and accomodating to the special needs of my friend. She assisted her on and off the tram with such care. It was lovely. The ride itself was well worth it. Hop on, hop off (raise your... More

I understand that elderly and young and disabled people may use it but I feel the only reason the tram is there is to rob you! Come on oc have a little respect don't charge elderly, young, or disabled people full price! Some people live on a budget! Your tram gets in the way of enjoying things. Stops way too... More

Easy way to see the entire boardwalk but, way costly! Everyone must ride the tram at least once in a lifetime!

Wonderful clean tram ride to get you back to your room after long day at beach or walking to boardwalk! Prices reasonable, getting a pass is helpful if using over several days.

The tram was great for seeing the whole board walk or returning to your hotel after a long day in the boardwalk. Be sure to ask about the passes available, they are more economical than paying by the ride, if you are going to use it more than once. There are several types of passes available.

We planned out our trip so one day we would hit all the stores on the tram. Evenings we would walk down to the action and tram it back. Great for traveling with kids and really makes the fun accessible to everyone.
