Riding the Bus on Oahu
Oahu’s public transit system, TheBus, goes practically everywhere on the island (take a circle island tour if you have some time on your hands, fare information below). It may not be the quickest way to travel, but it beats negotiating unfamiliar roads in a rental car especially if you’d like to kick back and enjoy the fabulous scenery. Most buses are equipped with bike racks, and most have handicapped access. Note that wet bathing suits are not allowed on board, and luggage must fit on your lap or under your seat.
