Owner description: The Jolly Trolley is a privately held company that was established in 1970 as the original tour and transportation system for the Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach Delaware USA tourist market. We have grown from 1 Trolley to a fleet of up to 20 vehicles including Trolleys, Buses, Vans, and Cars. Currently we are available year round for local Bus, Trolley, Van and Car service, and regionally for Van and Car service. We have also been involved in thousands of weddings, special events, and local charity events. We have carried millions of riders on our fixed route service between Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach. We network with several other privately held local transportation companies as well. Unique worldwide, we take great pride in our offering of the most complete and proffessional transportation service in our local area with exceptional service through the use of colorful, fun, and unique products.

“Affordable and easy to use”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I love using the trolley to get from Dewey Beach into the Rehoboth boardwalk area. For a $5 roundtrip ticket I can hop on the trolley and get to Rehoboth in a matter of minutes and know I can hop back on anytime up until 2am. I love staying in Dewey because it's not a crowded but I love going to Rehoboth for the boardwalk and shopping. Sure you get the occasional drunk crowd later at night but you have to expect that and at least they're not driving.

“Sure Beats Traffic & Parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

One of the first things you learn when visiting Rehoboth Beach or Dewey Beach is that parking has become a hassle. Usually, there's not enough parking spaces in season and there's a parking fee if you can find a spot.

But the Jolly Trolley is a convenient link between these two beach towns. For a nominal fee you can be picked up and dropped off along the route between the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk to Ruddertown in Dewey Beach.

If you are staying in Rehoboth Beach, it's a great way to bar hop in Dewey without needing a designated driver. If you are staying in Dewey Beach it's a great way to get to the Rehoboth Avenue shops, restaurants and the boardwalk without having to hunt for a parking space.

If you have a smart phone, surf onto the Jolly Trolley GPS Tracker and get real-time locations for each of the Trolley's. Go to www.jollytrolley.com and click on Jolly Trolley Tracker in the center of the page. You can see where each trolley has been and where it's going.

We used to stay in Rehoboth, but lately we have been staying in Dewey. Our car does not move for the week if we can help it and the Jolly Trolley is our preferred way to get back and forth between the two towns.

“Difficult to figure schedule`”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We looked up the schedule on-line and there did not appear to be a route that went straight down coastal to Rehobath boardwalk. Didn't like the idea of switching trolleys, so we took our car

“Easy! Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Jolly is a great way to get around at the beaches - expensive for families, but so is parking -- and parking is not easy to find. It's a good few blocks from our beach house to the closest stop ... but have stroller, will travel.

“A wonderful service to use”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My kids love riding on the Jolly Trolley every time we visit Dewey Beach. I can't remember the cost for all 4 of us, but I know it wasn't bad at all for the convenience of not having to take our car and find a parking space in Rehoboth (parking is limited).
