Backpacking Hawaii: 10 Must-Know Facts


4. Ride the Hele-On Bus

Taxis can be tempting, especially if you’re visiting a new place and have no idea how to get around town. Instead of hailing a cab, if you’re traveling on a budget or are looking for a more cost-effective mode of transport, learn how to take the Hele-On Bus to where you want to go. It can cost $1 for students, but carrying a large backpack with you won’t convince the driver that you’re a student and you’ll have to pay the full cost of around $2.50. These buses can stop anywhere along their route, but there are hardly any signs to help you know where you are. Be safe.
