Need to get around town? The best mode of transportation is the Jolly Trolley, Rehoboth Beach's original mass transit system. For a nominal fee ($3 one way; $5 round trip) you can buzz around town or visit neighboring Dewey Beach. The open air shuttle is a fun way to travel and it certainly lives up to the claim “’tis the season to be jolly.”

The Jolly Trolley has been transporting visitors and locals in and around the Delaware beaches since 1970. The Trolley’s fixed route service between Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach operates daily (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day) and runs from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m., leaving every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour from Rehoboth Avenue and the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, and every 30 minutes at :15 and :45 from Dickinson Street in Dewey Beach. The Trolley operates off-season weekends as demand dictates, and also offers limousine and charter service year round.

Did you know you can get a dose of local Rehoboth Beach history via the Jolly Trolley? Jolly Trolley History Tours are offered throughout the summer. The next tour is Thursday, August 18 and starts at 9:00 a.m. at the Anna Hazzard House at 17 Christian Street. The cost is $10 (cash only). Sit back, relax and learn a little something about everyone's favorite beach town.
