HONOLULU (KHON2) — Hawaii’s car rental shortage is showing no signs of improvement, but the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) says there are other ways to explore the islands.

In response to this, the agency has put together a list of alternate transportation options on different islands. Options include the bus, taxi, shuttle and ride-share companies and encourage travelers to consider booking their rental first before making other travel arrangements.

Additionally, Kauai is set to launch a shuttle service from Lihue airport to various resort areas. This starts in July.
