You can't miss American Samoa's colorful local buses, known as agia, or family buses. They converge on the downtown Pago Pago area from both sides of the island. Music blares from them, they bear names such as "Miracle of God" or "Queen Sophia," and they're festooned with flowers on days when ships are in port. For a fare of just $2.50 you can hop on in Fagatogo and go to the island's eastern and western extremes. Take the westbound bus to Leone, wending past the
amazing rocky island, Fatumafuti (Flower Pot Island); in Leone visit the cathedral. Other buses go farther west to the end of the line at Fagamalo Village. The eastbound buses go to beautiful beaches, such as Alega, Two Dollar, Pyramid Rock, and Tula Village. Find out more about the routes and timetables at the American Samoa Visitors Bureau in Tafuna, near the airport. Buses are a great way to meet the locals; however, for a speedier journey, hire a car.
