Coming soon to a trolley near you!


One of Dana Point’s best attractions is the free trolley that runs all summer long for locals and visitors.  Our trolley allows everyone to ditch the car and enjoy the ride with the wind in their hair. This year, the trolley featured its new and improved expanded route around the city. The trolly stops at more locations for more convenience. Summer just keeps getting better as we are also happy to announce the launch of our trolley video!

Starting soon, each trolley you hop on will feature a video on the screen behind each driver that shares helpful information about the city.  The video will showcase what each trolley stop has to offer. From food to convenience stores to shopping and recreation. Every stop has something for you.  If you are new to the community, or just on vacation, you won’t feel like you are riding around in circles.

Some of the most popular stops include:

Stop 1: Salt Creek

  • Sea Terrace Park
  • Salt Creek Beach
  • Connection to the Laguna Beach Trolley

Stop 5: The Harbor

  • Shopping and dining options
  • Coffee Importers
  • Rentals and Excursions
  • Connection to the Harbor Shuttle

Stop 20: The Lantern District

  • Shopping and dining options
  • Farmers Market
  • Ralphs

The trolley will run through Labor Day (September 3).  Our trolleys stop every 15 minutes at each of the 26 stops, and the trolleys are pet-friendly.  Oh, did we mention each trolley also has surf racks on the back that can hold up to eight boards? If you haven’t already done so, download the free Dana Point App to explore the city and use the trolley tracker. You can track each trolley in real-time, making your planning a little easier.
