The best way to see the sights in the centre of Pensacola is to board the Five Flags Trolley, which departs frequently from the Pensacola Visitor Center. The route passes through the historic Pensacola Village every weekday, with two lines serving the downtown area, Palafox Street, the waterfront and North Hill Preservation District. Another trolley service, the Tiki Trolley, runs along Pensacola Beach on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend. The Escambia County Area Transit System also runs public buses around the city daily, except Sundays, but these do not access the beach. There are bicycles and scooters for hire, and taxis can be ordered by telephone from various companies. Most visitors to Pensacola opt to hire a car, which provides maximum convenience for exploring the city and surrounding region.
