The City of San Clemente is pleased to announce the official launch of the 2019 Trolley Season. Starting this Friday, May 24, 2019, the original Red Line Downtown Trolley Route will operate daily with free rides through Sunday, September 29, 2019. The new Blue Line North S.C. Trolley Route, which will connect to the Dana Point Trolley System, is anticipated to start operations in mid-to-late June 2019, once the additional new trolley vehicles are delivered to the City.
The scheduled service times for the Summer 2019 schedule are:
. Monday-Friday: 12 noon – 10 pm
. Saturdays: 10 am – 10 pm
. Sundays: 10 am – 8 pm
Additional Holiday Service Hours:
. Memorial Day: 10 am – 8 pm
. 4th of July: 11 am – 11 pm
. Labor Day: 10 am – 8 pm
The Red Line Downtown Trolley Route runs northbound and southbound throughout downtown San Clemente and stops at 16 different locations, which include many of the City’s key destinations:
. The San Clemente Pier
. Avenida Del Mar & Ola Vista
. The Outlets at San Clemente
. The Metrolink train station at North
Due to the popularity of the San Clemente Trolley, which served over 115,000 passengers last summer, the San Clemente City Council voted to expand the trolley to provide daily service and begin a new trolley route to serve the northern part of San Clemente and make a connection with the Dana Point Trolley. The City received grant funding from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to support this expansion.
This summer, the new Blue Line North San Clemente Route will run from the Outlets at San Clemente north along North El Camino Real, Camino San Clemente, Camino Mira Costa, and connect to the Dana Point Trolley on Camino De Estrella at Calle Verano. The S.C. Trolley then returns south via Camino Capistrano and North El Camino Real, with stops at Camino Capistrano & Avenida Vaquero, Camino Capistrano & Camino Mira Costa, Camino Mira Costa & Camino De Estrella, and Camino De Estrella & Calle Verano.
Riders can expect a trolley at each stop about every 15 minutes, and once the North San Clemente route begins operation, riders can transfer between the two routes at the Outlets at San Clemente (Trolley Stop #9). Trolley stops are clearly marked with signs that have the San Clemente Trolley logo (below).
