Downtown-Beach Trolley

Now you can experience Downtown Santa Cruz and the wonderful Beach Boardwalk and Wharf area and leave your car in one place. Hop on the Santa Cruz Beach-Downtown Trolley and experience more of what Santa Cruz has to offer.

Visitors and residents will be able to catch a ride on Santa Cruz’s colorful replica trolley with real wood benches and wood and brass trim inside and out. It’s the best way to get back and forth between the beach and downtown and avoid parking and traffic.
