We use the Trolley to get around when we are attending an event on the island that has several locations. The trolleys are kept clean and the drivers are always pleasant. Highly recommended!

We stayed at Moody Gardens hotel. Got the trolley right across the street from hotel, takes you to seawall and to the strand. It only $1.00 p.p. each way comes every 1/2 hour. Just make sure you check the time of when it stops. Cheapest...More

Nice trolley, not expensive. You need correct change before getting on the trolley and there is no signs stating that correct changes. SO don't put 20.00 dollars in the money holder because the driver will not have change. We spent a hour the next morning...More

Excellent way to get from one end of the sea wall to the other. $1 per person (cash). Comes every 30 minutes on the hour and half past to each posted stop (or within 5-7 minutes depending on traffic, lights, etc.). Nice driver and very...More

Galveston is trying very hard to run a trolley service that is reliable and punctual. They seem to be doing a good job. Try it. You will certainly save $$ on parking at the Strand or on the Seawall.

He passed us three times before stopping. Once we boarded he was not friendly and complained to another worker on the bus how horrible the company was. We got off and decided to just drive ourselves.

The trolley was a great method of transport throughout our week. I do wish it would expand it's reach to the Boliver ferry. We made great use of it during the week and enjoyed visiting with the drivers.

We took the trolley right after they began, Young lady driving was a Hoot. She was BOI and knew just about everything about it. She kept us laughing the entire time. I believe it's no longer free but a welcome addition to the island!

It is not a trolley anymore but a jeep that pulls several cars behind it. Sorta like when Astroworld was here and they used to transport people from parking lot to the park. Actually the tour is bigger than the one you got... More
