Forty-eight hour advanced reservations required for hotel to airport transfers. Cost: $9 one way or $17 round trip
  • Airport Taxi (808 861-8294) – Fresh, clean vehicles are standing by to take you into Waikiki to begin your stay on the islands. Fares to Waikiki hotels during non-traffic periods run $30-$40.

HawaiiGETTING AROUND OAHU

TheBus (808-848-5555). Oahu’s only transit system is a bargain and considered one of the best in the country.

Bus transfers are offered and are valid for continued use within a two-hour window from being issued (by your driver). Visitor passes are also available for purchase.
