Honolulu (KHON2) — A New website To address the current car rental shortage on Kauai, it was initiated by providing transportation that both residents and visitors can use.

Transportation options include airport shuttle, ride sharing, bike rental, Kauai bus stop and route maps, and local walking guides. In addition, there are weekly blog posts on transportation-related topics such as how to book a shuttle and parking permit requirements for Koke’e State Park.

In a statement, Mayor Derek SK Kawakami of Kauai said, “We can get a glimpse of what it’s like to live without cars on the road during a pandemic, and we can’t deny how much traffic has improved. “. “As we continue to recover, we have the opportunity to better manage the impact of our visitors, including the implementation of transport mode changes on our island.”

This website is a collaboration between the Department of Economic Development and the Department of Tourism of Hawaii. Partners hope that the site will encourage eco-friendly vehicles, reduce traffic, increase small business opportunities and educate visitors about local cultural values.

There is also a section called “How to Travel with Aloha”, which provides tips and recommendations from a local perspective.

“Educating visitors about traveling responsibly is the key to addressing the impact of tourism and increasing the well-being of the Kauai community,” said Hawaii Tourism Board President and Chief Executive Officer. John de Fries says. “We encourage you to use this comprehensive website when planning your trip.”
