You’ve got plans to visit Oahu in 2024. You’ve compared hotel, resort, and vacation rental options and prices and have settled upon a Waikiki Beach accommodation that works for you and your family/group. All that’s left is to book transportation service from Honolulu International Airport (HNL) to the state’s most popular resort community. Assuming that it’s most cost efficient to book your transportation with a shared service, you’ve asked Google “How much is a shuttle from Honolulu Airport to Waikiki?” and found this article. We’re glad that you did, because we were able to intercept you before you wasted hard-earned money on a shared shuttle service that ends up being more costly than the preferred alternative. Read below for updated pricing for shared shuttles and why you should choose our service instead.
Updated 2024 Pricing for Shared Shuttles from Honolulu International Airport to Waikiki and Which Service Your Family/Group Should Choose Instead
Per Person Rates for Shared Shuttle from Honolulu Airport to Waikiki
Inflation has had an impact on the cost of pretty much everything in the USA, especially Hawaii. Shared shuttle services are no different, which has seen a near 45% increase in per person rates over the last four years. Prior to the “events” of 2020 per person rates hovered around $18 per person, but now they average between $24-26 per person. Have a look at the starting per-person rates for Waikiki’s leading shared shuttle provider, Roberts Hawaii, as of January 2024:
Based on the stated per-person rate on their website, a party of two would pay $50, while a party of three would pay $75, and a party of four would pay $100.
Do they offer a discount for groups of four? Let’s use their website’s calculator to find out. We have selected Luana Waikiki (which is closer to HNL than most Waikiki hotels) which minimizes the number of stops the shared shuttle would have to take before dropping visitors off. Below is a screenshot of the results:

It looks like we were wrong (above) when we stated the rate would be $100. It’s actually $104 for a family of four! Yikes.
More Affordable Flat Rate: Just $45 from Honolulu Airport to Waikiki
Do you want to pay $50-52 (party of two), $75-74 (party of three) or $100-104 (party of four) for an uncomfortable shared shuttle from Honolulu Airport to Waikiki? Certainly not! Instead, book your very own direct and private (no-sharing with strangers) flat rate shuttle for your party of four (or fewer) for just $45 (luggage included) with Honolulu Airport Transfer.
