Traffic on International Drive sometimes can be horrendous, like New York City at rush hour. And finding parking can be a challenge. A terrific alternative is the I-RIDE Trolley.
The trolley travels only along the International Drive resort area. It is the perfect way for visitors staying in I-Drive hotels to travel the area for shopping, dining or visiting other attractions.
With a day pass, the I-RIDE Trolley becomes the ideal hop on and off trolley. Passes are not sold on trolleys but at numerous locations on I-Drive.
There are two trolleys, the Red and Green Lines.
The Red Line Trolley travels I-Drive both north and south bound, running about every 20 minutes. It begins at the north end of International Drive at Orlando Premium Outlets and travels to SeaWorld Orlando, with numerous stops along the way. Then it heads south on I-Drive, ending at Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Ave.
Red Line south bound markers are red squares with yellow numbers. The Red Line north bound markers are yellow squares with red numbers.
The Green Line, running about every 30 minutes, starts from the Major Boulevard area Hampton Inn, travels Universal Boulevard and then shadows the Red Line on South International Drive.
Markers for the Green Line south bound are green circles with yellow numbers. Going northbound, they are yellow circles with green numbers.
Transfer between the Red and Green Lines are possible at designated transfer stops marked as stars on the Trolley Route Map (above).
