Le Truck still running?

Heard that the Le Truck, Moorea island transportation, has been discontinued. Anyone know of alternative transportation around the island? Hoping to avoid car rental.

Le Truck is still running as far as I know. BUT...it is NOT really a very convenient way to get around the island. It only runs according to the ferry schedule, so there are large gaps in the mid afternoon when the ferry is not running...and it does NOT run run completely around the island. There is one bus in each direction, only going half way around from the ferry dock to the Le Petite Village area.

I just noticed this thread from last year about Le Truck running in Moorea. We will be coming over by ferry from PPT, and heading back 6 days later also by ferry. We'll be staying at ICH Moorea. Would it be relatively straight forward for us to take Le Truck both from the port to ICH as well as back from ICH to the port? Also, is it a hassle when you are carrying luggage? Would you recommend using a private transfer operator instead? This isn't our honeymoon so we aren't looking for chaffeurs for everything we do, but if Le Truck is a huge hassle we probably will arrange for a transfer instead. Thanks!

With luggage I would recommend pre booking your transfers to the Hotel.

This post is a year old so just checking on Le Truck. We are staying at the Intercontinental (on points) and will have only carry-on sized backpacks. It seems the IC is at the halfway point around the island, does it make any difference which direction we go?

Are there any "Chicken Man" style places near the IC?
