The island of O‘ahu is serviced by the Honolulu International Airport (HNL).

The airport is about a 20-minute drive (non-rush hour traffic time) from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa or Waikiki.


Rates are subject to change.


There is taxi service available outside the baggage claim area at the airport. An average fare from the airport to Waikiki or the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa campus is between $20-30.

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 and 7-11 stores in the Waikiki area and from the Bus Pass Office. This may be a good option for attendees relying on the bus for transportation during the workshop.

Bus #4 runs between Waikiki and the University of Hawai‘i. Bus #8 runs between Waikiki and the Ala Moana and Ward Shopping Centers. Other routes take you all over the island (see TheBus website for more information).


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), which runs along the Ala Wai Canal. Turn right on McCully Street (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.
