- Fred’s Cab: 808 357-7663:
My favorite airport transport. This recommended resource costs about $50 one way. 5% discount if you rent your car from Lourdes at Avis in Kihei (808-874-4077). Please use AVIS ARC No. 0158045D (or better yet, the AVIS link below) to make your reservation.
- Speedi Shuttle: 808 875-8070:
Transportation to and from the airport. If you call in advance they will meet your plane.
- Avis: 808-874-4077 (Avis in Kihei) or Toll Free: 800-962-1434 (Avis National): Avis offers the option of Airport pick up or local pick up in Kihei. With a large fleet, convenient service, competitive pricing and alliances with many airline frequent flyer clubs, this international company is a good bet to service your needs. Good pricing too if you use our ARC/IATA number & AWD Code when making any reservation. Click on AVIS to use their website to make your reservation. ATA/ARC No: 0158045D and AWD Code: H461412
- The Maui Bus: 808-871-4838 $2 per ride or monthly pass. It’s getting more reliable but it’s not quite like the mainland so be sure you’re not on a tight schedule. Links to schedules and more on website.
- Uber:: For those into the sharing economy Uber is now on Island. I’ve used Uber across the USA and generally find it to be better than Taxis. Uber does offer a “rate checker” or estimator on their website. I did an estimated fare from Maui’s Airport (OGG) to Ekahi Village, and thought the range was rather high ($37 -$89).
- Turtle Tracks: For short trips, a fun alternative to Uber is Turtle Tracks. Only $3 per ride this is a great alternative and can be fun too! Reservations are requested.
