Hele On Bus, an island-wide public bus service operated by Hawaiʻi County, includes daily stops at Kīlauea Visitor Center. Please be aware, Hele On bus schedules are subject to change and delays. There is no public transportation or shuttle service available within the park.
The park is located in a rural area of the island, 30 miles away from the closest population center with rideshare drivers. Due to extremely limited driver availability, rideshare apps are very difficult and sometimes impossible to use within the park.
