Cook’s Island Bus

Cook’s Island Bus is a fun and inexpensive way to get around Rarotonga and see the sights at the same time. You have an option to go either clockwise or anti-clockwise and buses will stop on request.

Ask your accommodation provider for a copy of Cook’s Island Bus ‘Bus Schedule’. With a bus every hour in each direction, this is a great way to visit town for shopping, the Punanga Nui market on Saturday mornings, or stop off at your favourite beach for a swim.

“Fun and friendly bus drivers”

“We got an all-day family pass so we could have a good look around the island and were able to get on and off whenever we liked, all for $26 for the day. The bus driver was great, good sense of humour and he had lots of stories to tell, it made the trip more interesting. Grab a time table though so you get a better idea of when they’ll pick you up. There are two buses, one goes anti-clockwise and the other clockwise. The driver will stop anywhere along the road if you wave them down.”

“Great service with an ultra friendly driver. What a hoot the trip was with friendly locals joining in with the fun. We did the anti-clockwise trip and what a trip it was. Thanks guys.”
