Save time by using the new trolley to and from the large car rental facility
The Aloha State native took pictures of old-school Lahaina and Kauai trains for designers and pushed for “something that’s Maui.” Two double-car trams that pay homage to plantation-style trains of older Hawaii. The train, which will travel 15 mph, will take two to three stops and require only four minutes to move from one end of the track to the other, significantly cutting waiting and shuttle time to existing car rental facilities located outside the airport.
Each car, which is named after a Maui County island, holds 30 passengers. One train will run daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., often longer depending on incoming flights, with a second one deployed during peak passenger hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Trams move along a line that picks up voltage under the rail and powers the motor. Also, a train driver will hold a dead man switch and monitor for anything potentially in the track.
