added on the 8th of September, 2010
The means of public transportation in Honolulu and the whole island is The Bus. There are some 80 Bus routes only for the Honolulu area, including Waikiki and Pearl Harbor.

A lot of people use it and it's really very good, one of the best public transport I have met. If you have to transfer, you will probably need to head to Ala Moana Center (a mall) or downtown Honolulu.

One ticket costs $2 and it allows one transfer. If you want to spend more time with sightseeing, you may need a so-called Oahu Discovery Passport. It allows 4 days of unlimited usage of The Bus, costs about $20 and can be found in ABC stores.

I think public transportation is not only good because it's cheap but because it allows some real contact with locals. I love The Bus! :)

Address:
Everywhere in the city and around.

Price:
Ticket: $2
Discovery Passport for 4 days: $20
