When it comes to getting around Honolulu and the greater Oahu area, there are many convenient options. From private rental cars to the convenient city bus, there are multiple ways to reach your desired destination.
Oahu’s city transportation system is known as TheBus. Especially when heading to a destination within downtown Honolulu, TheBus can be a convenient, affordable option. For frequent urban routes, wait times between buses can be as few as 7 minutes, while local routes outside the metropolitan area can see wait times around one hour between buses. Visitors can purchase a multi-day pass that makes getting around to Honolulu’s top destinations even simpler.
If you’re staying in Waikiki, it’s easy to hop on the trolley to head to nearby destinations. The trolley’s route focuses in on most major visitor attractions, so while it’s not all-inclusive, it does allow for a convenient way to get to some of the area’s top sights. Tickets for unlimited rides over a certain number of days make the trolley an economical option for visitors.
While you won’t be hailing a taxi on the streets of Honolulu, you’ll find taxi stands at most shopping centers, throughout the business district, and at the airport. This can be a more costly way to travel but convenient when time is of the essence.
Of course, private rental cars are also abundant in Honolulu and provide the most versatility when exploring the island, especially when planning on venturing outside the city center. Whether it be by trolley or by car, there are many ways to explore the sights of Oahu!
