Buying a ticket for 30 USD/2 days at the DFS (Duty Free Shop, see picture below) on Kalakaua Ave. The ticket is good for 2 days and for all three Trolley lines: Pink for Shopping, Green and Red Line.
I did the green and red line on one day. I had other plans for the next day. It is recommended to do one line a day and starting the day early in order to enjoy every stop. The trolley goes like every 30 and 40 minutes and one ride on one of them takes about 80 minutes. Plan your stops ahead to safe some time!

At this stop you can --it depends on the driver-- only get out for like 5 minutes to take some pics from this look out. If you wanna get out here and take the next trolley you can go down to the beach, Amelia Earhart Monument (situated directly at the stop) and go to the Diamond Head Lighthouse.
