The Waikiki Trolley is an inexpensive way to get around Oahu if you’re familiar with the area already. That means, you either already moved to Hawaii and you’re living here OR you have enough Oahu and Waikiki visits under your belt to truly understand where the trolley takes you. The Waikiki Trolley isn’t as wide-roving as TheBus and won’t hit all of the smaller spots that Oahu’s public bus system will. That being said, it’s a great option if you want to get around to all of the major visitation spots. The Waikiki Trolley even offers deals for unlimited rides if used within a certain number of days.
Using the Waikiki Trolley for Getting Around Oahu
For reference, the Waikiki Trolley currently travels as far to the east of Oahu as Sea Life Park. From that area it’s just short walk to Makapu’u Lighthouse and Makapu’u Beach Park. The trolley also goes as far west as the Bishop Museum. Again, this isn’t the catch all for transportation all over the island but if you’re just wanting to spend the day traveling to attractions then you can do worse than opting for the Waikiki Trolley. If you’re already living on Oahu and you have friends or family staying in the Waikiki/downtown Honolulu area, then the Waikiki Trolley is a great tip to give them if they’re just wanting a day when they can get lost on their own without you dragging them to all of YOUR favorite places. (Been there, done that!) There are a lot of different options for taking the Waikiki Trolley and it seems to offer some great packages for panoramic tours, scenic tours, whole Island tours, shopping tours, and historical tours. Here is a link to their price guide. As you can see, it’s not as cheap as TheBus for getting around Oahu but the Waikiki Trolley does offer themed travel and transportation around areas of Oahu that will allow you do what you’re looking to do. While TheBus does take you to (or near) many of the same areas, with the Waikiki Trolley you can be assured that you’ll to destinations that you want without having to sit around waiting stop after stop.
