Transportation: I have never taken advantage of the Rainbow shuttle, but it is fairly good. Some students park far off campus and take the Rainbow shuttle to campus. It can be convenient, I personally didn't use it.

Transportation: Lucky for us UH students we get free bus rides with a validated ID. There are buses every 15 minutes to get to Waikiki which is great. But if you want to explore the island more then get a car or cling to a friend who does. Taking the bus to beaches like Sandys and Makapuu takes about an hour and bussing it to the north shore takes over 3 hours. I've done it before, it's not fun. It's possible to get around the island without a car but it is the worst thing ever. A lot of people here have mopeds to get to places around South Shore which is way less expensive than buying a car, but also more dangerous.

Transportation: UH Manoa has many transportation options. You cold bike, bus-it, drive, shuttle-it, walk and moped. The cost of all of these are relatively average if not free. It is easy to get around all of Oahu.
