Summer 2016: *FREE* PCH Trolley and Harbor Shuttle Coastal Service

Beginning Friday, June 17, 2016 and extending through Labor Day (Monday, September  5, 2016), the City of Dana Point will begin DAILY Summer Trolley Service to better serve the visitors and residents of our beautiful community.   Trolley passengers will be greeted by brand new open-air style trolleys and will enjoy an expanded PCH Trolley route, Dana Point Harbor Shuttle service and an extended operating season. 

Similar to last year, the PCH Trolley Route will run from Capistrano County Beach at Coast Highway/Beach Road/Palisades Drive in Capistrano Beach to the Monarch Beach Resort (formerly the St. Regis Hotel) and the Ritz Carlton, where it will connect with the Laguna Beach trolley.  Stops near other major hotels, the Lantern District, Strand Beach (Selva Rd.), Doheny State Beach, Coast Highway timeshares and Doheny Village, among other areas, are included within the PCH Trolley route.

The new Harbor Shuttle service will connect with the PCH Trolley at the Golden Lantern and Dana Point Harbor Drive intersection and will allow travel to the Ocean Institute, Baby Beach and the Harbor businesses and restaurants.

The hours of operation for the PCH Trolley and Harbor Shuttle services are as follows:
