Visitors to Maui will be able to use a new shuttle service from Kahului Airport to West Maui and Wailea starting this weekend. It will be another ground transportation option for travelers to consider while visiting the Valley Isle. Maui is still experiencing a rental car shortage.
The new “Maui ALOHA Shuttle” is the result of collaboration by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) and the Hawaii Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau (MVCB) and Polynesian Adventure Tours.
One Polynesian Adventure Tours motor coach will leave Kahului Airport daily at 11:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. to drop off passengers in West Maui at Royal Lahaina Resort, Kaanapali Maui at the Eldorado by Outrigger, Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa, Kaanapali Beach Hotel, Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa; Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club – Molokai, Maui & Lanai Tower; Kaanapali Alii and The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Kaanapali.
Another Polynesian Adventure Tours motor coach will leave Kahului Airport daily at 11:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m., and 3:15 p.m. to drop off passengers in South Maui at Wailea Beach Resort – Marriott, Maui; Residence Inn Wailea, Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, Grand Wailea Maui, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, and Fairmont Kea Lani.
The Maui ALOHA Shuttle service will start Saturday, July 3, and run through July 17 as a pilot program subsidized by MVCB. It could be extended through the end of summer. It will cost passengers to West Maui $50 one-way for adults, $35 for children 4-12 years old, and free for children 3 and under. It will cost passengers heading to Wailea $35 one-way for adults, $20 for children 4-12 years old, and free for children 3 and under.
Visitors who want to ride the shuttle can purchase their ticket at the airport counter located in the baggage claim. Once a ticket is purchased, passengers will be directed to a shuttle service that provides a ride back to Kahului Airport.
Visitors are encouraged to make arrangements for their return trip to the airport through their hotel concierge desk or online at polyad.com.
HTA encourages visitors to consider alternative ground transportation options instead of renting a car while on Maui. For a complete list of options, click here.
