Welcome to Waikiki Trolley! Where you can relive the glory days of Honolulu...

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!

The driver was very friendly and helpful. Waikiki trolley is very handy to travel from places to places around Waikiki beach. It has an open double deck where you can seat on the first floor and watch the view go by.

Our family LOVES the Waikiki Trolley. Albert, stationed at the information booth opposite The Cheesecake Factory is such a warm, friendly and welcoming person - an asset to the company.

If you get on the trolley early in the morning (they fill up quickly though) you could get off at Hanauma Bay and have a day at the bay and hop back on at a later time in the day. The Hanauma Bay parking lot fills up very quickly and by mid morning you will see a chained off parking... More

If you're staying in the downtown area and don't want to hire a car (Hyatt Regency US$30 a day to park!) then The Waikiki Trolley lines are a great way to get around and see the major highlights of Waikiki.

We used the Pink Trolley to get from our hotel (near Ilikai) to the centre of Waikiki to shop, for meals and to get to the beach. It can drop you off right at Duke's statue. Go careful upstairs if you're tall. We saw lots of people come up and hit their heads.

Thanks for your review of Waikiki Trolley! There must have been an unusually high number of passengers over 6 feet tall on your route. Thank you for the helpful tip. Otherwise, we hope you had a fabulous time on Oahu. Mahalo! More

They offer 4 tours by color (pink, red, green & blue lines). Only the pink line offers a $2 one way ride west from Chinatown to east almost to Waikiki's zoo. There is a discount if you are interested in all 4 lines. Brochures are plentiful everywhere.

Mahalo for your detailed review of Waikiki Trolley's routes and system. The PINK LINE is $2 for a one-way trip between Ala Moana Center and the end of Waikiki (near Honolulu Zoo). If you plan to venture into Chinatown, the RED LINE will take you there (not the Pink Line). In fact, Chinatown is a fun place to visit this... More

Great way to get around for a $2.00 fare from Waikiki to Ala Moana shopping centre - who needs taxis or hire cars. We spent less on buses and trolleys during our stay than we would have paid for parking. What a great public transport system.

These trolley buses are fantastic for getting around the place. Depending on which line you use, we mostly used the local one in Waikiki, only cost $2 per person per ride. The drivers are great and very helpful - they even give a bit of history as they drive. Very frequent and lovely and cool - but watch your head... More

Highly recommended to get some good impressions of the city and (depending on the line) also of the surroundings. We took the blue ljne which goes out of the city as well and offers yu incredible view on spots on the east cost.
