Getting around in Tahiti

How do you best get around in Tahiti? We have only 2 days on a stopover to NZ. To not make it too expensive is it possible to get everywhere by bus?

We will be staying at the Intercontinental. About how often would public transportation run from there into Papeete or the other way down to the large supermarket or just beyond that to the marina which has several restaurants.

How late does Le Truck run? Could we take it into Papeete for dinner? Would we need to take a cab back?

We are staying at the Sofitel Tahiti Maeva Beach resort. I wondered if we could take the bus from the airport as it seems to be close? And then use it as a good mode of transport.

The bus runs about every 20 - 30 minutes in front of the Sofitel & the IC during the day. At night it's a bit less. I would ask the front desk when you get there for a bit more precise information as many use the bus themselves.
