Thank you for making the 2022 trolley season a success!

Service has concluded for this season and we look forward to serving the island again in 2023.

Trolley service runs during the summer season. The 2023 schedule is in the works. Check back to this page for updates.

Free trolley service returns to Pensacola Beach over Memorial Day Weekend

Trolley runs 7 days a week 4pm until midnight beginning May 26 – September 4, 2023.

The Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA) will launch their free, open-air trolley service along Pensacola Beach beginning Friday, May 26, through Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 4. The Pensacola Beach Island Trolley is operated by Escambia County Area Transit (ECAT) and runs daily from 4 p.m. to midnight.

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 energy-efficient, open-air trolleys run on clean diesel fuel and are outfitted with a GPS device that electronically tracks its location, updating its position every 30 seconds.

Visitors can access the real-time trolley schedule four ways:
