Free trolley around Penscaol beach makes this a wonderful vacation desitnation: Park your car and start your vacation. The trolley has over 20 huts to stop and drop you off at and is at no cost, usually runs from 11am to 12am during the summer and 4pm to 12am in the off season.

the trolley operates seasonally, I think April-Mid October. It is a nice way to explore what the beach area has to offer without getting in a car. the best thing is if you want to catch "happy hour" somewhere and don't want to drive this is your outlet. there are designated pick-up and drop-off locations It allows you to sit...

Honestly after a hot day on the beach, riding up and down on the trolley to catch a breeze or go to a bar farther than we wanted to walk from our hotel was awesome. Take it to the end of the line to get to the state park and some amazing quiet and uncrowded beaches (there's a dog friendly... More

I love to ride the beach trolley. It gives a great opportunity to check out the views without doing the driving. It's also fabulous for setting up off Casino Beach and hoping a ride to the boardwalk area. The drivers are all amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. They also provide a nice cool off if you hop one with A/C on... More

Easy to find and track, using the online trolley tracker. Plenty of stops make it convenient to use.

When my husband and I travel, I am the "designated driver" (he hates to drive!) Unfortunately, I don't always get to enjoy the sights as much as I would like. What a pleasure it is to have someone else do the driving once in a while! And Pensacola Beach's trolley is just the thing! It's free! Fabulous! And it literally... More

The beach trolley runs up and down Ft. Pickens Rd and is a great way to get to the pier or down to Ft. Pickens. It's free and the drivers are very entertaining. It becomes a bit of a party later in the day as folks take it back to condos from restaurants on the pier.

One driver was willing to stop exactly where we were going instead on placing us at the nearest stop. Another dropped us at the stop even though the bottom was about to fall out and we got drenched walking. Either way the service is free and nice. You get to meet some of the other vacationers and score a free... More

The trolley runs on week ends and special events The drivers are not trained well,take their own good time and don't seem to care about the riders. Schedules are not kept and riders are tired of waiting and frustrated. Most end up walking or hitch hiking The concept sounds good but poorly executed.
