American Samoa Transportation

  • Aiga (Ainga) Bus

    Buses run by various villages will pick you up and take you where they go. The fare is negotiated with the driver, and the palagi price can be higher, but it is a good deal and it is fun to hear the music, and see all the decorations on each bus. No two are the same.
