There are so many great things to explore in St. Augustine, from the historic district to the beaches. If you’re staying in Agustin Inn and want to see it all, consider utilizing some of the excellent public transportation found in the city. From buses to trolleys and more, here are a couple of the easiest ways to see the sights of St. Augustine.

Parking in St. Augustine

Reservations at Agustin Inn includes a parking pass for a nearby lot. If you or your traveling companion have a handicap tag, you can park for free in any of the city-owned lots. Most of our guests prefer to park their cars once they arrive and take advantage of the city’s public transport.

St. Augustine Public Transportation

Sunshine Bus Company

While the city itself doesn’t have its own bus company, St. Johns County operates the Sunshine Bus Company. It features two routes. The Red Line serves the beach and downtown region, while the Blue Line mainly features large shops and Flagler Auditorium.

For visitors hoping to experience St. Augustine’s historic district and beaches, the city’s trolley tours are more convenient.

Old Town Trolley

One of the easiest (and most informative) ways to get around town is by taking one of the local trolley tours! A great option is the Old Town Trolley Tours, which features 23 stops and runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The stops stretch from the Old Jail to the Oldest House and also includes passage to the San Sebastian Winery, St. Augustine Distillery, and Whetstone Chocolate Factory. Old Town Trolley has vehicles equipped with ramps and lifts, though they suggest that guests who need these services call ahead to find out the schedule of these vehicles as well as which stops have adequate space to use these features.

Your ticket also includes complimentary use of the St. Augustine Beach Bus Shuttle, which includes stops at the Alligator Farm and St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum. This is especially convenient during the summer when parking near the beaches can become scarce. We suggest that all of our guests who are hoping to enjoy a little sand, surf, and sun take advantage of this shuttle.

If you purchase your trolley pass at Agustin Inn, you’ll have the option to buy the shuttle’s three-day pass rather than the standard one-day pass.

Red Train Trolley Tours

Another trolley tour option is by Ripley’s Believe it or Not. Their Red Train Trolley features over 20 stops, many of which are also on Old Town Trolley’s schedule. Tickets include the use of a shuttle that goes to Anastasia Island with stops at the Old Lighthouse and Alligator Farm as well.
