Welcome to Waikiki Trolley! Where you can relive the glory days of Honolulu...

Welcome to Waikiki Trolley! Where you can relive the glory days of Honolulu when streetcars and trolleys carried people all through town, and experience Hawaii the old style way in our open air trolleys! Enjoy the romance of polished brass, smooth wood, and the breeze in your hair as you explore the town.The Pink Line is your transportation all through Waikiki and over to Ala Moana Shopping Center. These Trolleys operate every 10 minutes for fast, easy, inexpensive transportation at just $2.00 per trip.The Red Line is a fully narrated guided sightseeing tour through Waikiki, downtown Honolulu, Chinatown and points in between. This leisurely schedule allows you to hop off at any spot to explore and then catch the next Trolley to resume your tour approximately 40 minutes later.The Green Line is also a fully narrated guided sightseeing tour and heads off in the opposite direction visiting spots in Waikiki, the Honolulu Zoo, the Aquarium, Diamond Head, along the scenic coast and off to Kahala Mall for shopping and movies. Hop on and off wherever you like! Our waikikitrolley website lists information on passes for all lines including multi-day combo passes for unlimited access on all three lines. Special discounts apply to on line purchases, but tickets can also be purchased at ticket booths at DFS shopping center and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. Tickets can also be purchased on board each Trolley or from most tour desks throughout Waikiki. A fun new offering from Waikiki Trolleys is the addition of complimentary walking tours with any red line trolley ticket. The Honolulu 1941 tour walks you back to the war years for a look at life in Honolulu, what the island did to get ready, and the life of a sailor on liberty, with a peek into the infamous red light district of the time. The tour is Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:15, 11:15, and 1:15 at the Aloha Tower Trolley stop. Waikiki Trolleys - Powered by Aloha!

Great way to get around Waikiki. They have longer tours as well as their shuttle rides that come very 10 mins. Spend the money to get a 4-5 day pass and hop on and off as you please.

We used the Pink line to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre from Waikiki. The buses run frequently and are cheap (only $2 each way) but don't expect any assistance from the drivers. One particular driver 'Thomas' has a very bad attitude. You might want to wait for the next bus to come along rather than board his bus. As the... More

The trolley is a little expensive but its worth a trip on it. However, you sometimes have to wait at least 15 minutes to get one. Lots of trolley are rented out by japan tourists. We enjoyed travelling on the trolley and seeing some of the sites. The bus is also a good way to get around the island. Overall;l... More

Rather than renting a car we decided to use public transportation and the trolley service met our needs. Wherever we needed to go, there was a trolley service nearby. We even took the "Purple Line" out to Pearl Harbor. The brochure highlighting the various routes was simple to use, the service stops were easy to locate, and the cost was... More

I try to take the trolley at least once every visit. The price is reasonable for a one day pass which allows you to ride all day. What a great way to get to and from wherever you want to go in Honolulu. The trolley drivers give you an overview of the sites along the way and are very helpful... More

Mahalo! Your recommendations are terrific. The RED Line goes to Iolani Palace and historic sights in downtown Honolulu. And to get to the new International Marketplace (we highly recommend!), ride the Purple, Red or Green lines. More

The trolley are aimed at Japanese. If you are not Japanese no one offers you a card or word of advice on how to travel on the trolleys. They are all aimed at JALPAK customers. The bus line is the only other option

Your sad review about Waikiki Trolley makes us very sad, too. Nonetheless, thank you for your comments. We love all reviews. Even gloomy ones. Having said that, Waikiki Trolley is for the general public - all ethnicities, none excluded. We love all of our passengers and do our best to cater to everyone. Here's where passengers sometimes get confused: Japanese... More
