Balboa Peninsula Trolley

The Balboa Peninsula Trolley is a free service to get you easily moving around the Peninsula without having to pay for parking or worry about finding a place to park.

The trolley route is the same as last year. The first stop is located next to the Avon Street Parking Lot near the intersection of Tustin Avenue and Avon Street within Mariners’ Mile.

TIP: Download the “ParkMobile” app and set up your profile (vehicle make, model and license plate) in advance. Then, enter the promotion code in ParkMobile’s Settings, before you pay for parking or enter the code “TROLLEY24” at either kiosk to receive free parking. Note: This parking code is valid in the Avon Street Parking Lot only.

From there, you can ride down the Peninsula and get off and on at any of the 22-marked trolley stops – all for free.

There will be a total of four trolleys operating each day. An additional trolley will be added into the rotation on the holidays. It is estimated that a trolley will be at each stop every 15 minutes; however, service may be delayed during periods of heavy traffic.
