Things To Know About The Maui Bus System to Lahaina!
+ Once you arrive on Maui, secure your luggage and walk outside to the crosswalk. Walk across the street at the crosswalk, and take a left at the concrete “island”. Do not walk into the parking lot.
+ As you walk along the island, there will be some taxis and other commercial and rental car company vehicles. Walk about 100 feet or so and you will see covered parking seats for the Maui bus. Wait there for the next bus to the Queen Kaahumanu Center (Queen’s Mall).
+ Look for the bus that is going to the Queen’s Mall. If you need to ask the driver, go ahead and ask if they are going to the Queen Kaahumanu Shopping Center.
+ The cost is $2.00 and no change is given. Make sure you have some U.S. dollar bills.
+ Once you arrive at the Queen’s Mall at the transit location, look for the next bus to Lahaina. There will be someone with a yellow vest that can answer your questions. You may have to wait 30-45 minutes for the next bus.
+ Depending on the time of year, the bus to Lahaina can be quite crowded. If a line has started to form, go ahead and get in line for the next bus to Lahaina.
+ You will need to pay another $2.00 for the bus to the town of Lahaina.
+ Try not to have a super-large suitcase. Some drivers won’t let you on the bus if you have a lot of luggage.
+ The bus to Lahaina will stop at a location in Wailuku and a transit location at the Maalaea Harbor. Stay on the bus. Do not get off the bus to Lahaina Town until it arrives at The Wharf Cinema Center, in the heart of downtown Lahaina.
+ Lastly, if you need to travel north to the Kaanapali Resort area, Honokowai, Kahana, Napili, and Kapalua, you can make a connection at The Wharf Cinema Center. It will cost you another $2.00 to ride the bus to Whaler’s Village in Kaanapali.
Suggestion: Get a one-day pass for $4.00 and, possibly, save some money. Also, consider getting a monthly pass if you plan to use the Maui bus system a lot during your stay on the island.
