​One of the many great things about Laguna Beach is the walkability of our coastal village.

Laguna Beach Transportation

Laguna Beach is a very "walkable" town, and there are plenty of public transportation options which allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery. Take advantage of the City’s FREE trolley service that services on Coast Highway between North Laguna/Heisler Park, downtown, South Laguna/Mission Hospital and Ritz Carlton in Dana Point.
