Rainbow Shuttle

With the fall 2019 rush coming up, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa wants to remind students, faculty and staff of available commuter options to campus. Commuter Services would also like to remind everyone about the importance of showing respect and consideration to our campus and community ʻohana.

UH is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and supporting sustainable modes of transportation. Commuters who live within three miles of campus are encouraged to consider alternative means of transportation, including walking, as a healthy and sustainable option.

Rainbow Shuttle

The Rainbow Shuttle is another sustainable option that UH Mānoa makes available at no charge with valid UH ID.

  • Some of the routes, stops and times for the Rainbow Shuttle have changed for Fall 2019. View the new schedule or visit the UHM Shuttle Tracker site.
  • Shuttle routes travel into Mānoa Valley, Mōʻiliʻili, Kaimukī and Makiki.
  • All shuttles are air-conditioned, ADA-compliant and equipped with bike racks.
  • Shuttle arrivals may be monitored in real time by downloading the UHM Shuttle Tracker app or visiting the UHM Shuttle Tracker site.
  • To ride the Rainbow Shuttle, you are required to show a valid UH ID.
