It’s no secret that Hawaii is having a major transportation problem for visitors right now. It’s a perfect storm of people beginning to travel again, on top of rental car companies’ respective fleets being decreased by more than 40% during the pandemic.
Lack of vehicles for rent has resulted in prices for rental cars in HI (and other places) being sky high, people renting really outlandish vehicles (the Hawai’i Tourism Authority doesn’t condone that one, by the way), and locals even starting their own rideshare companies on some islands.
Well aware that there are (literally) problems in paradise, the Hawai’i Tourism Authority has recently written an update regarding potential transportation alternatives specific to each of the six most major islands. Each list includes references for, depending on which island, public transportation, shuttle/taxi service, rideshares, (nonspecified) rentals and bike-share/bicycle rentals.
When you’re a stranger in a town, it’s rare to know what’s “out there,” besides the basics. Although the convenience of having a rental car would probably be preferred by a lot of visitors, having these references can potentially be a huge help in getting visitors from their Point As to their Point Bs.
