Getting Around Oahu: Taxis

If you don’t have a rental car and you need to get somewhere fast, a taxi is your best bet. We have a number of cab companies that service Oahu and each company offers unique benefits, so depending on where you’re headed and how many people you have in your party, you can choose the company that best suits your needs.

EcoCab Hawaii

EcoCab Hawaii is thus named because it is Hawaii’s first all hybrid taxi service. They use Hyundai Sonata hybrids. Each EcoCab is a wireless hot spot, so you can connect to Wi-Fi on any of your personal devices. There is also a Samsung Galaxy Tablet in the back seat passenger area, provided for your convenience (to use, not to keep!) Each cab comfortably seats four passengers plus the driver and the trunk space is adequate for typical light travel. To make a reservation, you may either book online or call 808-979-1010.
