Ridesharing companies get green light to begin service at neighbor island airports

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Popular app-based ride-share companies like Uber and Lyft can begin servicing Hawaii’s neighbor island airports next month, the state announced Thursday.

Travelers who pass through the Honolulu International Airport have been able to catch rides from ride-share companies since December 2017, when the state began testing the service.

But none of the state’s other major airports had received permits from the state Department of Transportation to begin operation — until now.

Beginning February 1, ride-share companies are allowed to operate at the following airports:

  • Kahului Airport
  • Lihue Airport
  • Ellison Onizuka Kona International Airport
  • Hilo International Airport
  • Kapalua Airport
