Trolley Service Starts May 24

The Santa Rosa Island Authority will launch their free, open-air trolley service along Pensacola Beach this Memorial Day weekend, beginning Friday, May 24.

The 2024 Pensacola Beach Island Trolley, operated by Escambia County Area Transit, will run daily from 4 p.m. to midnight through Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 2.

The trolleys help alleviate traffic congestion by allowing visitors to park anywhere and have a convenient way to tour the whole island.

Three trolleys will operate concurrently, running three routes. The eastern route runs from Casino Beach to Portofino, the western route runs from Casino Beach to Park West near the entrance gate to Gulf Islands National Seashore, and the commercial core route runs from Casino Beach to Grand Marlin with stops occurring along the new access road and at Pensacola Beach Boardwalk.

The trolley system, funded by the SRIA, is free to all riders. To see a map of all trolley stop locations, or for more information, go to
