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 are holidaying in Hawaii and have elected to purchase a 7 day ticket for all the routes offered on the Waikiki trolley routes. I would recommend it to anyone who wants the variety of downtown Waikiki, Honolulu and a slightly further afield experience. Our hotel tour advisor suggested we simply take the domestic busses because they are much cheaper.... More

Wow, thank you for your shining review. The Waikiki Trolley seven-day pass is a popular choice for leisurely travelers who wish to ride all four lines (Red, Green, Blue and Pink). We hope you scored the online seven-day deal, which includes free passes to the Waikiki Aquarium and the Honolulu Museum of Art. Sometimes, when traffic conditions are smooth, some... More

We're glad you made it home safely, and thank you for taking the time to write a review about Waikiki Trolley's Pink Line. The Friday night fireworks in Waikiki makes the ride special. But the timing has to be right - and it sounds like your driver, Shalom, did a great job at that! More

We have used the pink line on previous trips to Hawaii, this time was bought a ticket that allowed us to use all the different lines - it was well worth it!

Tuesday 21st July, pink line trolley 77. Our driver was Fred. He was one of the most rude people I have seen! Last thing I want on holidays is to be yelled at! He should not be in a customer service based job with the attitude he has!

Thanks for your review! We love the Hilo Hattie free shuttle, too. But here’s the difference between the HH shuttle and Waikiki Trolley’s Pink Line: The Hilo Hattie shuttle will first take you to its flagship store on Nimitz Highway (halfway between Waikiki and Honolulu International Airport), then onto Ala Moana Center by "special request only," according to its agents....

You made a good decision to ride Waikiki Trolley's "Blue Line," aka the Panoramic Coastline Tour. It's one of our most popular and scenic routes, as it covers Oahu's beautiful Eastern shoreline. Mahalo for riding with us! More

We caught the trolley to Ala Moana Shopping Centre from downtown Waikiki. Only $2.50 to ride or free if you have a JCB credit card. Driver was funny and spoke some Japanese which the tourists enjoyed. Driver almost constantly talking about something. Well worth taking a ride on during your visit.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It sounds like you had a wonderful time on the Waikiki Trolley. By the way, the rate for Pink Line to Ala Moana Center is $2.00. We hope you didn't pay $2.50. Otherwise, we hope you had a good time on Oahu. More
