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.

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.

A trolley & bus transportation network operated by E Noa is great value for money. Bonus & discount available if purchased online and ticket collected from one of the several depots located in Waikiki. The red, green and blue routes are longer, to popular tourist destinations. The drivers provide a continuous commentary and stop at points of interest. The pink... More

My daughter [24] and I bought a 4-day pass on line and then went to the Galleria to redeem it - all very seamless. The trolleys are a great way to see the area and get around. They run frequently and followed their schedule in a fairly punctual manner. The operators and other employees were all very friendly and the... More

I am writing a review on our adventures on the “Waikiki Trolley,” which we have used extensively during our visits to the island of Oahu. The trolleys here are replicas of the ones in San Francisco, only these have wheels! I can tell you, that as a vacationer, the trolley is an economical form of transportation (next to “The Bus”)...
