Kona to Hilo Bus Schedule
Filed under: Big Island, Big Island Areas, Hawaii - general, Vacation Planning
I will be visiting Hawaii later this month and will be travelling to the Big Island. I have two nights accommodation booked in Kona and then two nights in Hilo. I very much want to experience everything that both towns have to offer including diving with the Manta Rays and seeing active lava flow. I will be travelling on my own and I have heard that car hire in Hawaii is very expensive when you take all the extras into consideration. I was thinking of taking the bus from Kona to Hilo but I am not sure where I would need to catch it from. I will be staying at the Keauhou Beach Resort, would appreciate your advice on what would be the best option.
Hi Robyn, the hele on bus schedule is here: http://www.heleonbus.org/schedules-and-maps/kona-hilo-bus-schedule-1 – as you can see, the bus stops at the Sheraton Keauhou at 6:20 am, every day but sunday. The Sheraton Keauhou is just down the road from the Keauhou beach resort – maybe 15 minutes or so walk. If I were you, as soon as you check in, I would tell the front desk your plans to take the bus and see what they suggest – maybe they could even call the sheraton keauhou and find out exactly where the bus picks up at over there.
