For getting around campus and the vicinity, Commuter Services provides the Rainbow Shuttle bus service, free to the entire UH Mānoa community. The Shuttle operates weekdays during the Fall and Spring semesters. For routes and schedules, go to or just look for the white and green shuttle stop signs around campus.

UH Mānoa promotes “living aloha” by encouraging the practice of being considerate of each other and sharing our valuable resources. UH Mānoa acknowledges the advantages associated with the use of non-motorized vehicles (bicycles, skateboards, etc.) as a means of convenient and energy efficient transportation on campus. Look for Share Zones, Sharrow Lanes, and Bike Routes around campus.

As a benefit of paying dues, UH Mānoa students (except medical, law and Outreach College students) receive stickers for their IDs known as UPASS, which is good for unlimited rides on the O‘ahu-wide city bus system known as TheBus. There is no need to have a car when students can take TheBus to Waikīkī (26 minutes away), Ala Moana Shopping Center (20 minutes away) and the North Shore (approx. 2 hours away). For questions on routes, call TheBus customer service at (808) 848-5555 daily from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. HST. Find routes and timetables at or on “DaBus” app.
