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.

WE had a free pass for trolley which was great. However ours came every 20 minutes but the Japanese had one every 2 minutes! We werent allowed to catch any of the Japanese ones, there must have been at least 3-4 different trolley company servicing them compared to our one for australians.

We hopped on a trolley on the pink line. It took an hour to do the complete round trip. $2.00 per person, pay on board. Helped us to find our bearings around Waikiki. Driver was entertaining and provided a few facts. Not the cheapest mode of transport if you get off and on all the time (unless you do one... More

Good value and a good way to see the sights, at 2 USD per journey. Only went on the shopping route, as it was our last day, but would have tried the others if we had known about them when we first arrived in Waikiki.

Four different routes, informative and fun commentary. Pink (shopping) line can be crowded. Tip is to catch Pink Trolley at the first few stops to ensure a seat. Blur Trolley goes to Hananua Bay, Blow Hole, lots of other pretty places and all the way to Sealife Park, only three trips a day -best tip is to catch it at... More

The trolley has four different lines, shopping, historic, panoramic, and scenic depending on your interest. The best deal is to get the combined pass so you can do the different routes. You can buy tickets and passes online at a discounted rate so worth doing if you know that is something you will do when you go to Honolulu. Stops... More
