How to save gas on Kauai

Kauai's The Bus

Don't Overlook The Kauai Bus 

Kauai Bus Logo 

With all the talk about the price of gasoline and how to save, many overlook the bus service we have here on Kauai.  Actually it's surprisingly good as I have learned from personal experience.  We only have 1 main road around the island which facilitates frequent service with a minimum of buses. They are normally right on schedule, typically 1 hour apart, and the drivers are courteous and helpful.  Cost is only $1.50 per trip or $0.75 for youth and seniors.  Best of all, they're air conditioned!  That may not sound like a big deal to those who don't live here but most homes have no air conditioning so riding in a cool car or bus is one of life's little luxuries!  Some retirees get on the bus and ride just to "talk story" and enjoy being cool.  How much is gas in Hawaii?  Maui seems to be the most expensive and I just purchased regular there for $4.44/gallon.  Here on Kauai Costco has the lowest prices at around $4.08. 


Visit www.kauai.gov/Government/Departments/TransportationAgency/tabid/58/Default.aspx for service details and schedules.  The bad news?  They don't run on Sundays and they're now getting crowded.
