“Free Sun trolley from Airport to downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Our flight is 7:30pm after the cruise. We have several hours to tour the Ft Lauderdale area. We happened to find the free trolley bus service which meets our needs perfectly. After we got off the cruise at Port Everglades, we took a taxi to the airport (FLL). We stored our luggage at the airport at $6 per bag (cash only). Then we took the free Sun trolley to downtown area. There are several pickup stops at the airport terminals. The Terminal One Stop is located at the west end of the terminal, under a “bus stop” sign. Look for the colorful Sun Trolley label on the Bus Stop sign. The bus runs every hour on the hour from 9am to 4pm from airport. The pickup time from downtown is every hour on 30 after. The last departure from downtown is 4:30pm. Our bus left the Terminal One Stop 10 minutes early. So make sure you arrive at the bus stop a few minutes early.

The downtown stop is located at the History Center. We had a walk in the waterfront area and Las Olas Boulevard. Then we took the Sun Trolley Las Olas Line to go to the beach. The Las Olas line runs along the Las Olas Boulevard. It is $0.5 per person per ride and $2 per person all day ride. Exact change is needed. If you want to save even more, you can go to their website and print out the 2 for 1 coupon. There is a sign on the bus saying that the price will increase to $1/$3 starting 2014. The bus is very easy to spot and convenient. We simply stood along the bus route and waved to stop the bus. The drivers are all very helpful. There is also another bus line running along the beach, which we didn’t take.

Overall, if you have several hours available before or after cruise, the free Sun trolley is an economic and convenient choice.

“Great way to get around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Excellent service with trolley running every 15 to30 min. Two different routes to take at only 0.50 cents, though price goes up in January. A very good service and lots of stops.

“A great option in lieu of a rental car”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

For $.50 a person or $2 a day you can ride the trolly along the beach. From Friday to Monday you can take it to Downtown and back. In Jan this goes up to $1 and $3.

“Affordable sightseeing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We caught the Sun Trolley by the Publix on 17th and rode the full circuit in about an hour. Great way to see some sights. Our lady driver was helpful and funny. The seats are a little uncomfortable so after an hour we were ready to get off, but we had completed the full route we were on anyway!
Great affordable service during our cruise stay in FLL.

“Beach Transportaton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is a good deal in order to get to and from the Beach as well as the Galleria Mall and Museums - 50 cents for a single ride and $2 for a Day Pass. However, on the day I used it, one other couple and I had to wait close to an hour for a return bus (not the usual 30 minutes).
