You can now use Google transit to find your way around Oahu transit system with TheBus. Use this link to begin your search.

I tested the system to find my way from the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki at 2199 Kalia Road to the Polynesian Cultural Center at 55-370 Kamehameha Highway in Laie. Here is the result of the search:

Using TheBus is a great way to save money instead of paying for a rental car and gas. One way adult fare cost only $2 including transfers. Taking TheBus will also save you the frustration of having to navigate and drive through Honolulu.
Mahalo to Chris for sharing this great new feature.
