Weekend Schedule Only Until Further Notice

"Where is the weekend schedule?" All of our bus schedules contain both regular weekday, weekend and holiday schedules in one format. At the top of each column you'll see DAILY or M-F. DAILY means this trip is offered 365 days a year, weekends and holidays included. As we are currently reducing our schedule to a weekend schedule, only the trips offered under DAILY columns will be available.

LĪHU‘E – The County of Kaua‘i announces the following changes in Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for The Kaua‘i Bus service and administrative offices in order to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the people of Kaua’i from the potential spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).


Effective Monday, March 23, the Kaua‘i Bus will be adjusting weekday bus service to be the same as its current weekend service hours.


For the safety and health of all, The Kaua‘i Bus appeals to all bus riders to use bus service for essential needs only.

Transportation Agency Administrative offices will be temporarily closed for in-person service. We will continue serving our clients by phone, email, or in special cases by advance appointment. The Kaua‘i Bus phone number is 246-8110.

Limited essential staff will be responding to phone calls, phone messages, and emails to continue providing needed services to the public.

Coronavirus Information

As of Monday, March 9, 2020, The Kauai Bus team has been wiping down all touchpoints on our buses and vans with disinfectant each day.

While all surfaces are clean when a vehicle leaves the facility, it does not remain that way once someone touches the surfaces or coughs/sneezes on them. We need all of our riders to help in preventing the spread of coronavirus. Riders can help by frequently washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; covering their cough or sneeze with their elbow; and to stay home when they are sick.

By working together, we can keep our public transportation system and our community as safe as possible.  While we’re doing all we can to ensure a safe and clean environment, we must also ask that riders closely evaluate their own health and take necessary precautions to avoid the spread of disease.
