Transportation Agency Overview

The Kauai Bus logo

The Kaua'i Bus operates a Public (Fixed Route) bus service and a Paratransit (Door-to-Door) bus service from Hanalei to Kekaha daily.



May 7 until further notice

Due to ongoing roadwork on Kuhio Highway between Princeville and Hanalei the 500 Hanalei and 400 Lihue mainline bus service will start and end in Princeville during active roadwork hours on weekdays.

The Kauai Bus will provide a free shuttle service between Princeville and Hanalei between the hours of 8:00am and 5:30pm on weekdays only.  Please anticipate substantial delays with this service as the road will be closed for long periods of time, and when open will be one lane alternating directions.

The free shuttle service will use the same destination sign as the 500 and 400 depending on the direction of travel.

We will continue to monitor on going road work in this area and update this page as needed.
