The Balboa Peninsula Trolley returns on Saturday, May 25 with service throughout the summer from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday and on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day. The trolley is a fun and free way to explore the peninsula.
There are 22 designated stops along the trolley route. A trolley is scheduled to arrive in 15-minutes intervals, depending on traffic conditions. Riders are invited to climb aboard or exit the trolley at any of the stops along the way to and from the Balboa Pier and Fun Zone area.
For those planning a day at the beach, the trolley can accommodate bicycles, surfboards under six-feet long, and beach gear. Trolley riders traveling to the area can find free parking at the City’s Avon Street municipal parking lot located near the Tustin Avenue and Avon Street intersection within Mariners’ Mile along Coast Highway.
This service is provided by the City of Newport Beach through a competitive grant process from the Orange County Transportation Authority’s Measure M2 Project V-Community Based Transit Circulators.
