San Clemente Expands Free Summer Trolley Service

Earlier this month, San Clemente expanded its popular summer trolley service. The Blue Line North San Clemente Trolley Route operates daily with free rides through September 29 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 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.

The Blue Line joins the existing Red Line, which serves the San Clemente Pier, the Metrolink North Beach station, and other destinations.

Riders can expect a trolley at each stop about every 15 minutes and 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.

Funding for trolley operations comes from OC Go (also known as Measure M), which puts tax dollars to work locally.
