Description: Welcome to Waikiki Trolley! Where you can relive the glory days of...
Welcome to Waikiki Trolley! Where you can relive the glory days of Honolulu when streetcars and trolleys carried people all through town, and experience Hawaii the old style way in our open air trolleys! Enjoy the romance of polished brass, smooth wood, and the breeze in your hair as you explore the town.The Pink Line is your transportation all through Waikiki and over to Ala Moana Shopping Center. These Trolleys operate every 10 minutes for fast, easy, inexpensive transportation at just $2.00 per trip.The Red Line is a fully narrated guided sightseeing tour through Waikiki, downtown Honolulu, Chinatown and points in between. This leisurely schedule allows you to hop off at any spot to explore and then catch the next Trolley to resume your tour approximately 40 minutes later.The Green Line is also a fully narrated guided sightseeing tour and heads off in the opposite direction visiting spots in Waikiki, the Honolulu Zoo, the Aquarium, Diamond Head, along the scenic coast and off to Kahala Mall for shopping and movies. Hop on and off wherever you like! Our waikikitrolley website lists information on passes for all lines including multi-day combo passes for unlimited access on all three lines. Special discounts apply to on line purchases, but tickets can also be purchased at ticket booths at DFS shopping center and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. Tickets can also be purchased on board each Trolley or from most tour desks throughout Waikiki. A fun new offering from Waikiki Trolleys is the addition of complimentary walking tours with any red line trolley ticket. The Honolulu 1941 tour walks you back to the war years for a look at life in Honolulu, what the island did to get ready, and the life of a sailor on liberty, with a peek into the infamous red light district of the time. The tour is Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:15, 11:15, and 1:15 at the Aloha Tower Trolley stop. Waikiki Trolleys - Powered by Aloha!

We did the Red Line, Historic Honolulu Sightseeing Tour. We have done many tours of this type over the years but this was the worst by far. The driver of the bus was apparently also the guide but we learnt absolutely nothing about the history. All he did was tell you what was right in front of you. 'There's King... More

These kinds of trolleys can be seen in other cities like Austin , in Texas . It is a funny way to to move as you feel the breeze slowly on your face as they do not have windows

The trolley system is not a bad way to get around the city. Took a ride from Waikiki to Ala Moana centre at midday on a weekday. With the open sides, the trolley ( rode on the pink line) can be cool on a hot day but they are very noisy and you get all the traffic fumes as you... More

We appreciate your honest feedback! Thank you for choosing Waikiki Trolley for a part of your transportation needs. Depending on the route, sometimes an open-air trolley is a better option. The Blue Line panoramic coastline tour, for example, travels along the Oahu's eastern shoreline. Who wouldn't want an open-air double-decker trolley for something like that? It's like riding in a...

It makes us happy to hear that your children enjoyed the trolley experience! For visitors wanting to see all of Kalakaua Avenue (the main street in Waikiki), without walking in the heat, a ride on the Pink Line is a cooler option. The Pink Line takes you to Ala Moana Center, a vast shopping mall. Just $2 for a one-way... More

I used this trolley quite a few times during my holiday and never had a problem. It takes about half an hour to get from the beach at Waikiki to the Ala Moana Centre and costs $2 each time you get on. It does get crowded waiting at the Centre for the return trip to Waikiki but the double decker... More

Your tips are very helpful for customers and our staff. It certainly helps to buy a pass of more than one day if a customer wants to see multiple destinations in detail, such as Foster Botanical Garden the the Honolulu Museum of Art. Both the garden and the art museum are on the Red Line (Historic Honolulu Sightseeing Tour). We... More

The trolley offers 4 tour lines - Diamond Head, Downtown Honolulu, Makapuu lighthouse and the shopping tour. You can buy a 4 day all line pass for a little less than $60.

You said it: When you ride the Pink Line, have the correct amount of money ($2). It's a $2 one-way trip to your final destination. If you decide to get off, and get on again, it's another $2. The Pink Line, by the way, is also called the "Waikiki/Ala Moana Shopping Shuttle." One of our popular routes. Mahalo for your... More
