Summer 2016 Trolley Service

The Summer 2016 Trolley Service is back!  The City of Dana Point Trolley Service will run DAILY beginning June 17th through Labor Day.  This FREE service will better serve the visitors and residents of our beautiful community.  Trolley passengers will be greeted by brand new open-air style trolleys and will enjoy an expanded PCH Trolley route, Dana Point Harbor Shuttle Service and an extended operating season.  The PCH Trolleys and Harbor Shuttle will be handicap accessible and free of charge.  In order to ensure timely service, 4 PCH Trolleys will be used to keep wait times at 15 minutes or less.  Riders can access real-time PCH Trolley and Harbor Shuttle locations and wait times on their smartphones with the use of a trolley tracker at  Click here to view a map of the route and times!

Similar to last year, the PCH Trolley Route will run from Capistrano County Beach at Coast Highway/Beach Road/Palisades Drive in Capistrano Beach to the Resort at Monarch Beach (formerly St. Regis at Monarch Beach) and the Ritz Carlton, where it will connect with the Laguna Beach trolley.  Other stops will include major hotels, the Lantern District, Strand Beach (Selva Rd.), Doheny State Beach, Coast Highway timeshares and Doheny Village.  Additional stops have been added to this year’s service: Golden Lantern/Del Prado (Ralph’s Shopping Center), PCH/Silver Lantern and Dana Point Library.

The new Harbor Shuttle service will connect with the PCH Trolley at the Golden Lantern and Dana Point Harbor Drive intersection and will allow travel to the Ocean Institute, Baby Beach and the Harbor businesses and restaurants.
