Ride­the Hele-On Bus for a Buck

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - SHOPPING -

There are lots of ways to get around the Big Is­land, but none of them is as easy on the pock­et­book as rid­ing the county’s Hele-On Bus. It’s $1 per ride, with monthly passes or pre-pur­chased tick­ets avail­able for $7 for a sheet of 10. There’s also a $1 charge per large carry-on, such as lug­gage, over­sized bags and bi­cy­cles. Hint: bring ex­act change.

The county’s Mass Tran­sit Agency re­cently beefed up ser­vice on some of its more pop­u­lar routes, and two new ac­ces­si­ble buses have gone into ser­vice to aid dis­abled rid­ers. The Tran­sit Agency also of­fers a shared-ride taxi pro­gram that pro­vides door-to-door rides for as lit­tle as $2 within the Hilo-city area.

For more in­for­ma­tion and sched­ules, call the Mass Tran­sit Agency at (808) 961-8744 or visit www.heleon­bus.org.
