Shuttle from Honolulu to Waikiki Hotels

Hi, Our last couple of visits to Waikiki we have just gone out the front and jumped on a Roberts shuttle. As we were no need to be rushed there (from an early flight from Australia 10.20.am ) this suited us fine.

This time we will be coming from Maui in the afternoon.

I noticed thar Roberts don.t seem to have this service, anymore you seem to have to prebook. I.ve seen everyone thinks Hawaii23 is good. Do you have to prebook them or just go out the front? Taxi not bothered about them really.

Any help would be good. If we have to prebook can we do this at Maui.

SpeediShuttle is the new kid on the block with very nice van transportation between HNL and Waikiki. I booked in advance on-line, but I doubt that it is a must. You could call them from Maui if you like.


Roberts is using smaller vans now. Looks like you can book them on-line. I haven't used them, but I have used SpeediShuttle.

I have no idea whether Hawaii23 is any good.

If you want to use Hawaii23, book them in advance. They have a very good reputation on this board.

We flew into Honolulu from Kauai in the middle of the day, and just got the first shuttle that came along. It was easy.

Hawaii23 is the favorite of this board. Call in advance for reservations. Twenty three dollars transporation into Waikiki instead of $35 for a taxi.

We used Roberts in December. Their representative met us when we got off the plane, and took us directly to luggage claim. They handled all baggage for us, and then took us to hotel in one of their new smaller shuttle buses. This service was $20/pp/round-trip and we loved it. We were at the hotel about 30 minutes after leaving the airport.

Luggage claim was the only disaster and that wasn't Roberts' fault. Three big mainland flights had baggage claim on the same carousel. That was on Hawaiian Airlines!

I highly recommend Roberts--booked them on-line, got my booking information and had it printed out even before we flew!

The new shuttle charges $14.55 per person. You have to wait until the bus fills up before you leave the airport. Taxis cost between $30-40. If you prebook a cab you can get a fixed price of $30.00. They will be waiting for you when you arrive. Google, Honolulu airport taxis to Waikiki and a few companies will show up.
