UBER Launches In Honolulu With A Splash

Getting around Honolulu can be a pain in the okole sometimes.  Our traffic seems to never end and construction never stops.  Pau Hana happy hours are way better without having to worry about traffic, parking or the ride home.  Now that Uber has launched in Honolulu, getting around town just got easier.

From the Convention Center to your hotel?  Tap a button.  Kaka’ako to the beach?  Tap a button.  Heading to see the Rainbow Warriors play at Aloha Stadium?  Tap a button.  You can request a ride quicker than you can say humuhumunukunukuapua’a!  Get around Honolulu easier and classier than ever before.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download the UBER mobile app (iPhone/Android) or go online at m.uber.com, and request a car.

  2. Don’t worry about waiting outside: the app shows you exactly where your driver is, plus you’ll get a text message when your car is arriving.

  3. Don’t have any cash? Fear not! All payments are seamlessly processed with your account’s credit card, there’s no need to tip, and a receipt is immediately emailed after your ride.

You can find details about our rates and the service area on our Honolulu City Page.

A few more reasons why riding with Uber feels like magic:

  • It’s super easy to use and geared towards giving you the quickest way to request a ride.

  • Fare splitting (aka fair splitting) makes sharing rides a no-brainer.

  • UBER support is a real human genuinely listening to your feedback.

  • Riders rate drivers so we can ensure exceptional trips every time.

  • Watch your driver head to your location on a real-time map and see your driver’s ETA tick down.

  • Leave your cash at home.  No cash on the driver or the rider makes it safer for everyone!

  • Rates are set so that gratuity is neither required, nor expected.

Take command of how you get around Honolulu by having your own private driver ready for you at all times.

So Honolulu, need a ride?  Hang (for) ten.  We’ll be right there.
