old town trolley

We were able to buy the tickets at our hotel. The trolley stop at our hotel and picked us up. It then brought us down to Mallory square where we had a chance to go on a tour. I suggest you go on the complete the tour to see what you want to do. I also was concerned about the quality of the drivers, but to my surprise they were very professional in their driving, I would not want to drive in that town.
We then took it again and got on and off at the stops at the attractions we wanted to see. we also got the next day free. When one of our party wanted to go back to the hotel, we did and got the next trolley back to old town to watch the sunset. The only downside is the trolley stops before sunset and we had to get a taxi back to our hotel, but even that was great. we did it each night and found them very friendly.

Old Town Trolley

The Old Town Trolley is a hop-on/hop-off bus, and was a great way to get around Key West to see all the main tourist spots and to get from one place to another. The trolley stops are all over, and the trolley's seem to stop every 20 minutes or so. AND, the $30 ticket is good for TWO days! I really enjoyed the trolley tour, and our guide "Buddy" was hilarious!

Military and Senior Discounts are available.

Train/Trolley Tours in Key West

Hi Deb,

Since your husband can not do a lot of walking, I'd suggest either the Old Town Trolley or CityView Trolley Tours. Do not sign up on your cruise - do so after you disembark. If you purchase onboard ship, your tour will only take you around the island, not allowing the on/off feature. Find the kiosk at Mallory Square and purchase your tickets there. Old Town Trolley has 12 stops. CityView has 8 stops. You can get off at any stop you like, explore the area, then hop back on a later trolley. The Conch Train does not have an on/off feature.

There are no horse/carriages in Key West.
Hope you have a great time.

Old Town Trolley Tours

For our first full day, we did the Trolley Tour. You can get on and off all day at 12 different stops. The stops are all over the island so chances are that there will be one near where you are staying. Parking is hard to find and expensive in the old town/Duval Street end of the island. All of the attractions and museums are accessible from the trolley route and if you don't like your guide, you can just get off and get on a different one.
I would recommend getting on when it first starts in the morning and planning on doing it all day as we started close to noon and were unable to get to all the stops. There is also a conch train but it does not allow you to get on and off.

Trolley?

If you've never been, and want to learn a little about the history of Key West, the trolley is a fairly cheap way to go about doing it. Aside from that, Key West is not that big of an area (at least not the touristy part) and you can easily walk around. Another neat thing to do is rent bicycles or scooters. That is how the locals get around and there are parking stations for them all over the place.

Enjoy...the Keys are great.

Trolleys

Since i was there for a wedding, they ordered us cute little trolleys to take us back and forth. It was neat to be able to sit in an open air vehicle, it was EXTREMELY hot that day (and i had to wear my brides maid dress), and the drivers were full of cool info to give. Some of them think they are comedians, i love when people do that!

bone island shuttle

Coming back to Key West this year, I find it very difficult to understand why all these websites cannot get it right. THE ONLY GREAT BUS/SHUTTLE SERVICE IN KEY WEST IS UNFORUNATELY NO LONGER OPERATING. The company, whom i have contacted had no comment and STILL sends out brochures with the bone island shuttle on the cover. This should be followed up since it is FALSE ADVERTISING.

Conch Tour Train

The Old Town Train is a neat way to first orientate yourself with Key West. I recommend doing it first. The guide also goes into great detail about the history. The train tour is 90 minutes long, but you do stop for a break at the midway point. They also give you good coupons for other Key West attractions.

Bone Island Shuttle

When we found out how expensive taxis were, we decided to try and return our rental car to the airport more cheaply.

So we bought Bone Island Shuttle tickets - they were at that time (2001) $5 each. Now they are $7 each.

Then Bob dropped me off at a hotel near the airport, returned the car and walked from the airport to the hotel. We spent the rest of the day riding around on the shuttle.

They don't have a canned tour like the Conch train does, but for tips (or if asked) the driver will tell you about the place. There are many more stops and they go out into the rest of the island (and to all the major hotels), which the Conch train doesn't do.

It is enclosed, so it can be A/C, but it is harder to take pictures through the window. The different little buses/vans are painted with different aspects of Key West. The one upper right has what looks like an eagle, and the one on the left says "In Memory of Nell" and there is a cat and some chickens on it.
