The Hop-on, Hop-Off service includes 18 stops, such as Universal Orlando Resort, Disney Springs, Florida Mall and the Premium Outlets. Tickets are $28 per day for adults and $20 for children ages 3 to 12. A week pass is $75 for adults and $60 for children. Scheduled service will start on International Drive serving Pointe Orlando, I-Drive 360 (Orlando Eye), the Orange County Convention Center and SeaWorld.

The Theme Park Express costs $14 per day to Disney and $8 per day to Universal.
