Owner description: 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 each bought a week's pass and used it for touring and getting around town. (Can be spread out over 10 days). It is a great way to see the area, and the drivers are knowledgeable and fun as they talk about Hawaii history and landmarks. You can book online ahead of time for a saving.

The management of the pink line station on the oceanside of Ala Moana Center needs to be more strengtherned. The travellers with JCB credit card could use the card as a free bus ticket, and they could use the card to ride the "Di Dang" trolley as well, the trolley station is around 20 meters away the pine line bus...

Unlike tour buses, the Waikiki Trolley consists of four trolley lines going to different parts of the Honolulu area. For $38 a person, you can go on any line, get off and get on, and transfer line-to-line. The pass is good for two days. Lines go to Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor Memorial, major shopping centers and downtown as well as... More

The thing you need to realise about this service is that the different lines serve different purposes. The pink line is just a shuttle bus line between the hotels and Ala Mona shopping Centre. There is no commentary and frequent stops. This is great is you just want to get around or go to the shops. You can ride on... More

We were initially going to by a ticket for $20 to go on the redline which takes you to see some ancient sights, it was nice but really wanted to hike Diamond Head. That meant extending our ticket another $18. It was the best money I spent! This brought us around the east side of the island and dropped us... More

You can never really depend on it as a mode of transportation because it is too infrequent. Though I must confess that when you do catch it, it's a nice ride. It's a bus that's open on all sides, has a roof. The Pink Trolley pass comes free with your stay at some hotels (it came with ours). Get the... More

Like the saying goes, experience is like a comb that you get after you lose your hair. We wish that we had ordered trolley passes a couple of weeks before our trip. The online price is cheaper, and the one week pass for all four lines is probably the best deal. Unfortunately, you need to order at least a week... More
