Bill would set fee for Airport-to-Waikiki taxi rides

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Amidst complaints from visitors about the cost of transportation, a bill that will be heard by the Honolulu City Council this week could determine a flat-rate for all taxi cab rides between the airport and Waikiki hotels.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Waikiki hotel officials support the measure, citing frequent complaints from tourists transiting in and out of Waikiki.

City officials, though, don't know whether they can actually implement the set fee, and opponents say a flat rate could drive taxis away from the airport.
