Getting around in Maui can be accomplished in a variety of ways. One of the most popular methods of transportation for tourists is renting a car. Car rentals in Maui are not overly expensive and are definitely less expensive than hiring a taxi every time a new part of the island is in a tourist’s exploration plans. There are about 25 rental car companies on the Island, which is why rates are so reasonable – they all must compete for business.

There is a public transportation bus system that runs on Maui, but it may not be the best option for visitors traveling with small children. The public transportation system is quite extensive and most fares range between $1 and $3 per ride. However, a few of the routes are free. Bus schedules are available in hotels and they are also posted on the Maui County website.

For anyone wanting to feel the wind in their hair, motorcycles, mopeds and scooters are also available for rental. Using one of these vehicles to traverse the Island is a unique way to see the sights. Most of the motorcycles, mopeds and scooters available can be rented either by the hour, by the day, or by the week.

Taxis are always available, but expensive. For a quick trip to the mall or any other tourist area, however, the cost is not overwhelming.
