After travelers arrive by air for their island getaways, there is a variety
of ways to get to their accommodations, the beach, or whatever they'd like to
see first. All throughout the island, multiple companies run Maui airport shuttles
to wherever travelers need to go. After passengers arrive in airports
in Kapalua, Hana,
and Kahului, they can step
aboard a Maui airport shuttle to get their vacation started. No matter when
they're planning to visit or which of the airports they fly into, travelers
can rest assured a local shuttle company will be available.
Several of the hotels and resorts provide their own Maui Airport shuttle service, so when travelers are making their reservations, they can take care of their transportation needs at the same time. Ground transportation is also included in many packages for all inclusive vacations. When vacationers want to take care of the details themselves, they can make arrangements for a shuttle to the Maui airport with a local company.
For nearly 20 years, Maui Executive Transportation Service & Executive Shuttles, a company that specializes in Maui airport shuttle services, has been providing transportation to the airport and getting travelers to where they need to go. The company's shuttles are dependable and affordable, and they're available 24 hours a day. What started as a one-taxi fleet has grown to include more than 30 vehicles, including sedans, limos, vans, and mini-buses. Many of the Kaanapali hotels have contracts with the company for Maui airport shuttle transportation.
Travelers also can make arrangements with another Hawaii-owned company for a shuttle to the Maui airport. SpeediShuttle started on Maui in 1992 and has expanded to the Big Island, Kauai, and Oahu. Its Maui airport shuttles can accommodate up to twelve people and their luggage at once, all in comfortable surroundings. The company's knowledgeable staff is happy to share their wisdom about how to get the most out of a vacation. The airport shuttles provide door-to-door service at a fixed rate; travelers also can book transfers to the attractions of their choice, including golf courses, nightlife hot spots, and museums. When it's time to go home, travelers can step aboard a shuttle to the Maui airport in plenty of time to catch their flights.
In addition to Maui airport shuttles, there are other options for ground transportation. Taxis can be flagged down for metered service, and the public bus system provides service between many cities, including Lahaina, Kihei, and Napili. Passengers can ride for free or a nominal fee, depending on the route. A variety of companies also offer short-term and long-term car rentals, both at the airports and various other places on the island. Many companies rent convertibles and other fun cars, perfect for those who want to cruise through their vacation in style.
For those who want to do a little island hopping to nearby Molokai and Lanai, the other islands in Maui County, they can rely on local companies for transportation. Molokai has grown into an out-of-the-way escape with plenty of welcoming amenities. Available 24 hours a day, Hele Mai Taxi takes travelers from the airport to places all over the scenic island—the name of the company means "let's go" in Hawaiian. Over on Lanai, airport shuttles make regular runs from its resorts and hotels.
