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!

Good for a trip from Waikiki Beach Hotels to Ala Moana Shopping Centre; however just remember that this service terminates early on Public Holidays and weekends. A one-way fare is 2 dollars per adult.

It sounds like you rode our Pink Line that travels between Waikiki and Ala Moana Center. And yes, Waikiki Trolley runs on a modified schedule on holidays and weekends. The "Map and Guide" (available on our website and at ticket booths) is a handy way to keep tabs on that. Glad you rode with us. Thank you for your post! More

We stayed in a hotel that offered free pass to the Waikiki Connection so didn't have to pay $25 for the Red Line. The Pink Line does do a $2 one way though so we did it from Ala Moana Shopping Centre back to Waikiki Beach.

Five different lines that goes everywhere. Best deal. Buy the one day, get next day free pass on all lines. Take advantage of the off and on policy. Best way to see the island. Workers are most helpful.

We originally went on the blue line. *Keep in mind, on Tuesdays, Hanauma Bay is closed so you go to Maunalua Bay instead.* The tour guide was funny and entertaining. The views were breathtaking and we had plenty of time for photos and time to simply enjoy the sites. I got the tickets from the lobby of the hotel. The... More

Get a look into local life while seeing some of Oahu's most beautiful nature sites. If you're riding the green line, ride with Fuji! He was very knowledgeable and made the experience worth it with facts and insight on the island. THANK YOU FUJI!!

Ride on the pink line. The pink line is a cash only 2.00 per person per ride. It has several stops at many different hotels ,shopping and places to eat. The double decker bus makes it even more fun!

We had free travel on this trolley as part of our hotel stay at the reef, so glad we did the tour, our driver was brilliant, lots of interesting places on the way, saw much more of the area and can hop on and off when you want, highly recommend this tour.

I definitely have pros and cons about Waikiki trolley. Pro: they offer 5 different lines for the areas of interest. We purchased a 7 day pass, unlimited all day use for all 5 lines for $70 per adult and $45 per child and they give you ten days to use the pass. It's a great way to see the sights... More

Aloha! Thank you for your honest and detailed feedback of Waikiki Trolley. We're happy that you opted for the seven-day pass, which can be used for up to 10 days. The Waikiki Trolley Best Value Bundle offers free admission to Sea Life Park and other attractions. On the other hand, we are extremely sorry to hear about some of the... More

We enjoyed the convenience and flexibility of getting on and off the Trolley at various sites throughout Waikiki. The tours are a great way to get around if one does not choose to rent a car during their stay.
