Ideal for visitors!

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.

Fares & Routes

  • Adults: $2.50 one way, with 1 free transfer per trip (ask the driver for a transfer when you pay your fare)
  • Students (grades 6-12 and under age 19): $1.25 one way
  • Seniors (65+ with reduced fare card or valid Medicare card) and persons with disabilities: $1 one way
  • Any child 5 years of age or under may ride FREE (when accompanied by a fare-paying passenger and does not occupy a seat)
