    how does this work for help with to/from job interviews as I relocate back to Maui and in the beginning, would be low income as I most likely would not have work immediately upon landing….possible? cost? how to arrange and how much notice? Do you pick up from Upcountry?

    Thank you for the service you folks provide. Living in Hana and without transportation to go into the inner city of Maui is such a blessing to me. Living off grid in Hana has it’s challenges for me, however this website will allow me more independence in booking a ride on line. Here in Kielliku without a cell tower has it’s pro’s and con’s. Now thanks to this site, we will be able to interact through email. Thank you again and blessings. Chris Daniels.
