*NOTICE: DUE TO ROAD CLOSURES AS A RESULT OF THE HANALEI LANDSLIDE, THE NORTH SHORE SHUTTLE WILL NOT OPERATE OUT OF PRINCEVILLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. SERVICE WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE HOWEVER BETWEEN WAIPA PARK & RIDE AND HA’ENA STATE PARK.
Kauai visitors often drive rental cars to visit the island’s picturesque North Shore, adding to traffic delays and amplifying parking challenges. A relaxing, eco-friendly means of visiting the area is by Kauai’s new North Shore Shuttle, which operates from Waipa to Ha’ena State Park, with access to Ke’e Beach and remarkable hiking opportunities. Polynesian Adventures was selected to operate the shuttle service which began in June 2019.
The $35.00 round trip rate includes a reserved seat at an appointed time and departure location , the ability to get on and off at all stops, and entry to Ha’ena State Park. Passengers can board the shuttle at any stop and plentiful free parking is available at a Park & Ride location at Waipa.
Tickets must be purchased in advance online at gohaena.com and are not available directly from Polynesian Adventure Tours. The shuttle stops at the convenient locations highlighted below.
