The Bus senior pass

Can we get the senior pass of The Bus ? We are foreign tourists.

We had got the 4days pass.but the price was raised recently.

Aloha,

If you're a senior, most drivers allow you to pay the senior/Medicare rate even if you're not a resident.

Now that the pass has increased so much, it's usually cheaper to just pay by trip.

As to your specific question, I'd call to ask. (808) 848-4500. How long is your stay on Oahu? The costs of the senior pass could outweigh the benefit for a short visit.

Aloha

Thank you for the info.

We will stay 7 days on Oahu.

And we also can ride the free trolley some times.

So we consider the better way.

I would just pay the senior fare and not take so much precious time going out to the facility to get the pass. With you only having 7 days, that little "trek" will consume at least half a day. Too much time investment for such a little payoff.

I agree that trekking out to get a senior pass for a short visit is not worth the time, what does a senior pay if the driver is kind enough to give a senior fare on a trip by trip basis if people ask for 'a senior fare please'? Thanks

Thanks jet, I have looked at thebus link (although I couldn't make your link work). I just didn't see what exact change a person needs if the driver allows a person to pay the senior fare without an actual senior bus pass. I think I have understood the previous posts as to that being suggested?
