All Aboard in 2014

The Santa Cruz Trolley begins the 2014 season on Saturday, May 24, 2014 and will run until Labor Day, September 1, 2014.

Daily service will run from 11AM to 9PM, getting you between the Downtown and the beach area in true trolley style. 


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.
