The Boardwalk Tram
The ocean breeze, beach, sand, and family atmosphere are just a few of the reasons why you will want to ride the Ocean City Boardwalk trams during your visit to Ocean City. The comfortable Boardwalk trams can take you the whole length of the Boardwalk, which travels from the Inlet to the north booth at 27th Street. The Boardwalk tram will stop at most any location along the route to load or discharge passengers. The best part of the half-hour ride will be the detour that takes you on the pier close to the ocean where you can see, hear, and sometimes even feel the ocean water. Now you know you are in Ocean City, Maryland!
The Boardwalk Tram fare is $4 per person, per boarding, one way ride, sold at the north and south tram ticket booths and on any Tram. Major credit cards and exact cash fare is accepted by the Conductor at the rear of the Tram.
West Ocean City Park & Ride Shuttle Service
The Town of Ocean City is pleased to offer ample free parking and a shuttle to/from the South Division Street Transit Center at our West Ocean City Park and Ride facility. We are so proud to be able to boast about the gorgeous sunsets and scenic views of the bay while you park your car, walk, ride your bike, or just watch the birds. The outstanding view of the wetlands and the Ocean City skyline from the octagon gazebos will take your breath away! Be sure to read our interpretive signs, inspect the railroad bridge and brick walkways, as they add a unique historical value to this true gem. You just cannot believe it, until you see it for yourself!
The West Ocean City Shuttle between the South Division Street Transit Center and West Ocean City Park & Ride is a seasonal operation that begins in May and runs intermittently into October.
