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!

With a bunch of stops around the city the trolly is the easiest way to see the city. And with numerous lines you can focus on history, shopping and downtown.

I travelled on the Pink line trolley to the shopping mall. Really simple system, just pay $2 and find your seat. Being my first time to Waikiki this was perfect to see some sights of what's around locally on the way to the mall. Be aware the drop off spot and pick up locations are different at Ala Moana Centre.... More

You are correct. There are two different stops at Ala Moana Center. Drop-off is at # 12 next to Nordstrom. Pick-up is at #13 on the "makai" oceanside of the mall, across from Ala Moana Beach Park. We appreciate you taking the time to review Waikiki Trolley. Aloha! More

The pink trolleys will take you from the hub of Waikiki all the way too Ala Moana shopping centre. It's $2 USD every time you jump on, heaps cheaper than a taxi or hiring a bike for the day. We also took the green line $20 per day and that gives you unlimited off and on privledges for the green... More

Mahalo for your review and recommendation! It sounds like you paid a fee every time you climbed aboard a Waikiki Trolley. This is a wonderful option for passengers who do not wish to ride the public bus or pay for cab fare. Another money-saving option is to purchase a Waikiki Trolley pass with unlimited, one-week access to four routes (pink,... More

E Noa has quite a few trolleys/buses and not all necessarily service the 4 lines. This leads to confusion most times. Some have pink signage on it also, leading you to believe it's for that line. We had a few poor experiences: One bus was idling next to the stop (waiting for the light) and we ran to catch it.... More

We are very disappointed to hear about your experiences with Waikiki Trolley. Thank you for your review. It gives us the opportunity to clarify a few things: • Due to safety, buses and trolleys have strict rules on where they can pick up and drop off passengers. Hotels enforce these rules. The trolley that idled at a red stoplight was... More

Cash only option for the Pink Trolley. This ended up being a terrible experience with this service.

I recently paid for two advance purchase 7 day passes at the internet discount rate of $59 each, for the trolley and have found I have wasted my money.

We are extremely grateful for your review of Waikiki Trolley, because you hit several points. First, Waikiki Trolley is an open-air, leisurely way to get around sunny, sometimes windy, laid-back Oahu. Second, passengers do not have to hassle with parking in Honolulu. And third, every trolley driver is an experienced tour guide. That said, it sounds like the seven-day pass... More
