Transportation in Honolulu is plentiful and includes public and private transportation options.
Oahu’s public bus system is extensive and is called TheBus. Fares are $2.50 USD one-way for adults, $1.25 USD for youth (6 – 17), and free for 1 child under the age of 5. Maui’s Bus Public Transit System offers services throughout the region and costs $2 USD for each boarding. Kauai and the Big Island have limited bus services; therefore, other transportation is recommended.
The Waikiki Trolley is an open-air, hop-on, hop-off trolley that seats approximately 34 passengers and includes narrated information during the drive. A 1-day pass is $45 USD, a 4-day pass is available for $65 USD and a 7-day pass is $70 USD.
A 24-hour taxi service is available on each island of Hawaii, and vehicles generally have multilingual drivers. Taxi vehicle types vary from limos to vans to regular passenger vehicles. Fares typically start at $3 USD and approximately $0.40 USD per mile thereafter, plus a tip for the driver.
Moped and Motorcycle Rentals
Throughout the islands, you will find motorcycle and moped rentals. Mopeds, however, only go 48 kilometres / 30 miles per hour. So be cautious about where you ride your moped when sharing the road with other vehicles.
