IMPORTANT – SCHEDULE CHANGES AND CLOSURES
- An updated schedule for November 20 – Dec 20 has been posted. Please note that all Princeville reservations through November 30th depart 15 minutes earlier than originally scheduled on November 3rd (i.e. 7:15 am instead of 7:30 am for the first reservation).
- Note that the shuttle will no longer stop at Hā‘ena Beach Park until further notice. See our FAQ page for details.
If you are a visitor traveling by shuttle to Hā‘ena State Park (which includes Kē‘ē Beach area, Kalalau Trail, Hanakāpī‘ai Beach and Hanakāpī‘ai Trail) then you will need to purchase a round-trip Reservation ticket which will also serve as your official entry ticket to Hā‘ena State Park. If you are a backpacker / camper please review our latest update and our special camping section on our FAQ page for details and suggestions. If you are a visitor heading to any other stops except Hā‘ena State Park, you should purchase a Hop-On pass. This is available for a single one-way ride, or in day pass, week pass, or month pass durations that include unlimited on/off privileges.
If you are a resident of the State of Hawai‘i traveling by shuttle you may purchase a Hop-On pass which may be used to board the shuttle at any stop location, and then show your valid Hawai‘i driver’s license to access Hā‘ena State Park for free. We also offer limited free transportation for residents traveling eastbound in the morning and westbound in the afternoon – please review our FAQ page for all the details. Also if you hold a County of Kaua‘i Bus Pass this will serve as a Hop-On pass for our shuttle as long as your bus pass is valid.
