THE BUS

Route and Schedule Information: (808) 848-5555. Website: http://www.thebus.org

O‘ahu's bus system, logically dubbed "TheBUS," offers island-wide service. The cost for a one-way fare is $2 for adults and $1 for elementary and high school students; exact change is appreciated. People carrying large suitcases or baggage are not allowed on TheBUS. Riders are allowed to transfer to any connecting line as long as it is going in the same general direction. Request a transfer slip from the bus driver when you board the bus.

A $20 Visitor Pass (good for 4 consecutive days) can be bought from ABC Stores in Waikiki and the Ala Moana Shopping Center and from the Bus Pass Office. This may be a good option for attendees relying on the bus for transportation during the workshop.

From Waikiki, take Bus #4 to the University of Hawai‘i.

CAR RENTALS

Cars can be rented from the Honolulu International Airport and also in Waikiki. Major companies include Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, National, and Thrifty. For phone numbers (both toll-free and local), click here.

DIRECTIONS TO UH MANOA

The workshop will be held in Moore Hall 153A (PC Lab) on the palm and plumeria-adorned University of Hawai‘i at Manoa campus.

From the Honolulu International Airport, UH Manoa is about a 20-minute drive (non-rush hour traffic). Take H-1 east for approximately 20 minutes. Then take the University Avenue (24B) exit. The exit ramp takes you onto University Avenue, from which you will take your first right at the signal onto Dole Street.

From Waikiki, UH Manoa is about a 10-minute drive. Turn off of Kuhio Avenue onto Ala Wai Blvd (one-way). Turn right on McCully (it will take you over a bridge that spans the Ala Wai Canal). Turn right at the first signal onto Kapiolani Avenue. A few blocks down, turn left at the signal onto University Avenue and keep heading up the street (toward the mountains) until you cross under the H-1 Highway overpass. Turn right at the signal until Dole Street.

Then . . . .

  • To park in the parking structure ($3 a day) on lower campus, turn right off of Dole at the first traffic light (onto Lower Campus Rd). There is plenty of space in the parking structure, and it serves as a good option, especially on weekdays. Moore Hall is about a 5-10 minute walk from the parking structure.
  • To park on upper campus, turn left off of Dole at the third traffic light onto East-West Road. There is very limited visitor parking ($3 a day) behind Kennedy Theater on weekdays. On weekends, however, there tends to be plenty of space and more available lots. Ask the parking guard at the entrance kiosk where to park when purchasing a parking pass.
