“Great Way to See Boardwalk”
Reviewed August 25, 2010

The Boardwalk Tram offers a great way to see the boardwalk, shops, restaurants, and get from point a to point b without having to walk. To save some money if you are planning on using the tram more than one time, purchase the multi-ride pass. It definitely helps with the pocketbook!

The staff working the trams are great!

“Transportation in OC”
Reviewed April 26, 2010

Thought I'd relay my thoughts on the Transportation in OC.

The boardwalk tram is $3.00 per person each ride. So, we normally get the tram closest to our hotel/condo and go to the inlet = $3.00. Then do our activities at the inlet, walk a little up the boardwalk and catch one when we're ready = $3.00. So that's $24.00 for a family of 4. Expensive, a little, but if you get the card for 8 rides, it's only $20 and it works great for our family.

The bus is an excellent means of transportation in OC. It's $2.00 and you ride all day.

However, if I have my children, we prefer taking the boardwalk tram because it's fun for them, you get to see everything on the boardwalk, and it's something different.

“Very expensive and can never find one when u need one”
Reviewed August 10, 2009

The tram is very expensive, very crowded and uncomfortable, and most of the workers on it are rude. You can never find one when you need one and one night had to end up walking 28 blocks back to our hotel. The bus was another joke could not take it either because, it was filled with all the oc drunks leaving from the bars. you would think that oc would change the cost of this tram I know it makes a ton of money for the city but, it is a real pain.

“a waste of time and money”
Reviewed September 28, 2008

We took the tram from one end of the boardwalk to the other one summer night on vacation thinking this mode of public transportation would be economical and and a relatively quick way to get around. It was neither. In fact , it was a very frustrating experience. It cost way more than it would have to drive and park at the end of the boardwalk where the attractions are. Secondly, it is not express, it is a local. It stops at almost every street. It took over an hour to go 28 blocks! Ridiculous! Hard to believe anyone would give this advice in these enviromentally sensitive times, but skip this tram and drive to the end of the boradwalk in your car. It'll be faster and cheaper.
