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.

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”)...

You buy your multi day pass on line then pick up at one of two outlets in town. They don't sell at the online discount price at the outlet. Looking forward to using our 7 day pass over the next 10 days. Easy way to get around and plenty of chances to catch them during the day.
