Oʻahu Transportation

Discover O‘ahu’s many transportation options that make it easy for you to explore our island. The diversity of public and private transportation options makes it possible to have an enjoyable and at times sustainable journey on O‘ahu.

Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) on Oʻahu is Hawaiʻi’s major airport, serving as the entry point for most of Hawaiʻi’s visitors. All major domestic carriers and many international carriers serve Oʻahu, so you can get here from just about anywhere.

You can get around by car rental, shuttle, taxi or Oʻahu’s public transportation system (TheBus). Please note: Rental cars are in high demand, so please plan ahead to secure a reservation. More information about vehicle rental and ground transportation options can be found here. Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Island. Others rent mopeds and motorcycles. But to really experience all that Oʻahu offers, you should consider reserving a rental car in advance from the Honolulu International Airport.

Oʻahu’s city transportation system is aptly named “TheBus.” Fares are reasonable, routes are extensive and there are special visitor passes for multiple day uses. Note: You will need cash or a Holo card to ride! For more information on fares, bus routes to popular attractions and other useful information visit http://www.thebus.org.

If you’re looking for Waikīkī transportation and an easy way to visit nearby attractions, the trolley is an affordable option. The routes and destinations are not as extensive as TheBus but the trolley goes to most major visitor attractions and offer tickets for unlimited rides over a certain number of days. For more information visit http://www.waikikitrolley.com or call (808) 593-2822.

Taxis are a great way to travel when in a group and the cost can be shared. You can find taxi stands at most major shopping centers, in the business district and at the airport. Note that rather than hailing a cab, finding taxi stands at major shopping centers and businesses as well as calling for pick-ups via hotel concierge or phone is the norm in Hawaiʻi.
