10 free things to do or see on Maui: No. 9 transportation


Note: Links to other posts at end.

You may be able to skip renting a car on Maui if you don’t plan to venture far afield, especially if you stay on the west side of the island.

The Ka’anapali Trolley runs every 30 minutes from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily between Whalers Village shopping center, Ka’anapali resort hotels and condominiums, The Fairway Shops and Ka’anapali Golf Courses. Schedules are available at hotels and on the trolley. For more information, call 808-667-0648.

While not free, Maui Bus service costs only $2 and runs seven days a week, including holidays. Its 13 routes include stops at Whalers Village in Ka’anapali, Wharf Cinema in Lahaina, Napili and — perhaps most importantly — the Kahului Airport.

You may want to choose lodgings within these free transportation areas or those offering their own shuttle service.
