Advertise On Hele-On

The County of Hawai'i Mass Transit Agency only allows for advertising on the interior of the transit buses for non-profit organizations and governmental agencies only at no cost. There is no exterior advertising allowed at this time on buses or bus shelters.

The County allows non-profit organizations to post one bus placard on every bus for one month (30 days) for free, once a year. If you have received a 501(c)3 tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you may take advantage of the one month free advertising program.

The process for getting your advertisement on Hele-On begins by submitting a formal letter of request for space to Tiffany Kai, Mass Transit Administrator. Advertisements being posted under the one month (30 days) free option are on a first come / first serve basis.

  1.  In your letter of request, identify your organization as a non-profit wishing to use your one month (30 days) of free advertising space for the year.
  2. Please remember to include a copy of your 501(c)3. 
  3. If you have a specific posting date in mind, let us know as soon as possible so we can do our best to accommodate you.
  4.  To take advantage of the free posting no corporate names or logos are allowed on the placards.
