Connecting Downtown Santa Cruz to the Beach and Wharf Area
The trolley is the best way to get back and forth between the beach and downtown and avoid parking and traffic. The Santa Cruz Trolley is convenient, ADA-accessible, and an enjoyable way to experience what Santa Cruz has to offer for all ages.
Trolley riders can park downtown and easily get to the Monterey Bay Exploration Center, the Santa Cruz Wharf, Main Beach and Cowell Beach, and the Boardwalk and still have time to shop and dine in the Downtown. Use the Parker app on your iPhone or Android device to make searching for parking easy. You can also use the Parkmobile app to locate and pay for parking from your smartphone.
The trolley leaves the historic Del Mar Theatre at 1124 Pacific Avenue every 30 minutes on the hour (:00) and half hour (:30) to bring you to the beach. The last runs leaves downtown at 8:30 PM.
The trolley leaves the entrance to the Santa Cruz Wharf at 106 Beach St at quarter after (:15) and quarter of (:45) each hour to bring you back Downtown. The last run leaves the beach at 8:45 PM.
