LOTMA Commuter Express
The "First Class" Commute!

Let someone else do the driving while you read, sleep, relax,
or talk with new friends on the LOTMA Commuter Express.
You'll arrive at work relaxed, instead of frazzled, and you'll
save money on gas and parking!

The LOTMA Commuter Express travels non-stop on the freeway express lanes between Central Oahu and Honolulu, providing commuters with a quick, comfortable and affordable option to driving alone.

Luxury Coaches:
The LOTMA Commuter Express vehicles are clean and comfortable "Polynesian Adventure Tours" luxury coaches, equipped with air conditioning, overhead reading lights and reclining seats. The coaches are driven by safe and courteous professional drivers.

Emergency Ride Home Program
It's great to ride the Commuter Express to work, but what if you have an emergency--you might be stranded! No worries! We'll give you a ride home--if you're a participant in the LOTMA Emergency Ride Home Program. It's a special incentive to encourage you to travel to work without your car--without the fear of being stranded. (Pre-registration required.)
