Getting around in Maui can be accomplished in a variety of ways. The most popular method 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 your plans.

There is a public transportation bus system that runs on Maui, but it may not be the best option for visitors. The public transportation system is fairly extensive and most fares range between $2 and $4 per ride.  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 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 available can be rented either by the hour, by the day, or by the week. "Scooter" or moped rental is a dangerous prospect on Maui. The roads are narrow and there are many distracted drivers on them. Although Hawaii doesn't have a helmet law, it's a better idea to rent one with any motorcycle rental.

Do note that car seats and booster seats are required by Hawaii State law for most small children and all infants. It is reccommended that you bring your own, if possible. Rental car seats may not be safe or clean. Most airlines allow free transport of car seats.
