The New Honolulu Double-Decker AlohaBus!

When you think of double-decker buses, you usually have images of London and New York City.  Gray Line has just finished adding a fleet of colorful, open-top, double-decker buses to their Honolulu offerings.  The AlohaBus currently run two of three-lines on an unlimited, on-off basis.

You get unlimited use of the Waikiki – Honolulu Day loop, Pearl Harbor Express, and their night loop for dining and entertainment. (Pearl Harbor Express is operated on a Coach Bus and not the AlohaBus).

You purchase a 24-hour, 48-hour or 72-hour pass and set your own schedule as you get on and off any of their stops at your leisure.  Tickets cost $39, $49, and $59 respectively for adults and $14, $19, and $24 for children.

They currently offer a web special of $10 off adult tickets plus you can get one free child ticket for each adult ticket purchased! That brings prices down where the double-decker AlohaBus becomes a very reasonable alternative to renting a car, fighting traffic, looking for parking, and paying parking fees.

To get these special prices, simply log into their website and purchase your tickets, print out your confirmation email, and redeem them on any AlohaBus.  Or, if you don’t have a printer, simply make note of your reservation number and along with a proper id, you can pick up your tickets at their service center in Waikiki.

There are no seats on the lower-level of the AlohaBus, but fortunately, it doesn’t rain that often in Honolulu.  But, in the event of rain, they do offer ponchos.

One of the features of the new double-decker AlohaBus is that each seat is fitted with GPS-activated narration provided in English, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin), Korean and Spanish, featuring fun and unique stories and facts

If nothing else, children will love the added fun of taking in the sights of Waikiki and Honolulu from the unique vantage point of an open-air, roof-level seat of a colorful, double-decker AlohaBus!

  • […] 5) If you're going to Waikiki, renting a car for a couple of days so you can get out and see the other side of the island is highly recommended. Renting a car for your entire stay is not, unless you really object to using public transportation. Virtually all the hotels charge a parking fee of $30-40/night, gas will be approaching $5/gallon by the time you get there, and Honolulu has a good bus system. You can also sign up for the Waikiki Trolley or the Double-Decker bus to get around to the more popular areas.… […]
