White sand that begs you to take off your shoes. The shallow, calm waters of the Gulf. Attractions like Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where you can meet Winter the Dolphin.

No wonder so many folks choose the beaches in the St. Pete/Clearwater area for their vacations. But what you might not know is that you don’t need a car to enjoy them thanks to two Clearwater Beach trolley options.

The Jolley Trolley offers service on Clearwater Beach seven days a week, and their Coastal Route services Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Beach Trolley will take you to any and all of the beaches from Clearwater to Pass-a-Grille, at the very south end of St. Pete Beach. The St. Petersburg Trolley takes you into the downtown areas.

What's more, all of the Clearwater Beach trolleys are inexpensive to ride.

Leave the car keys at home!
