The trolley is such an awesome option for people visiting the area! Car rental prices have been outrageous so we ended up not renting one. We didn’t need one with the trolley! There are many pick up/drop off locations and it doesn’t take long for a trolley to arrive! We visited so many different beaches and restaurants just by riding the trolley. Download the app by scanning the QR scan found at the trolley stops. You’re then able to see the different routes and the estimated time of arrival for the next trolley. Super convenient and free!! All of the drivers are super nice and helpful, too!

Two buses/trolleys run in opposite directions and the stops are all marked on the signage by the benches. Even if you miss one, sit and enjoy the day and be patient.

The bus routes really cover a lot of territory and do stop at Monarch Beach by the Ritz Carlton. That is a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the views. It isn't too long a walk to continue up PCH to Dana Point from that Ritz Carlton stop (which is the end of the route for this bus). The sidewalks make for safe walking.

We've been up way past Heisler Park, walking along the many cove beaches, and have seen the marked bus stops that far from the center of town. I believe we saw the last one listed as #36 but there could easily have been more.

Our visit to Laguna Beach this year occurred in January and the bus was running a regular schedule. We rode this bus several times and appreciated that there was a way to get to some of those stops before the Ritz Carlton as walking can be pretty dangerous when there is no sidewalk.

Perfect transportation for sight seeing and getting around Laguna Beach. Trolley stops are clearly marked. Drivers are very helpful in making sure you're on the correct line and also announce when to get off at the desired destination.

We take the trolley quite often. Our kids absolutely love it. Over Christmas we did caroling on the trolley which was an awesome experience. Can't wait for it to start running again!

The only issue is when you are heading back South from Main beach it can take a while for the trolley to arrive and it is pretty crowded.

Love the concept, execution the worst. We were there 3 days and tried many times to use the service. Never a trolley in site. And then 3 would roll by within 5 minutes of each other. And then the trolley didn’t go places you would assume they would - such as Dana point. Makes no sense!

Love that they have this! We had a lovely time seeing the sites down and up the coast. It's super convenient to get from place to place without having to move the car but we just did a loop. My little one collapsed for a much needed nap - score!!!

Limited hours and days of service are small prices to pay for "free" but there is also another bus route for a fee. Check the days and hours of service as the freebie bus reduces its services during off-peak times of year. But, if you are there when it is running, this is a no-brainer. Take it up to the Salt Creek stop and walk down to paradise.

Trust me, you gotta do this.

I love taking the trolley. It's free in the summer and the routes cover the whole town. Plus it's a great way to avoid traffic and parking hassles. Download the Laguna Beach City app and there is a Trolley Tracker. So you can see where the trolleys are and when they will come to your stop.

The trolley is a great way to get around as parking in Laguna beach is tough. It's a free service that stops frequently. All the drivers are friendly also.

I have reviewed this one already but just wanted to add a pic with a map of routes and stops.. Hope it helps. I use it to check beaches names and hotels locations and their trolley stops.
