Wheelchair Accessible Transportation (Oahu)

There are several wheelchair accessible transportation options for exploring Oahu. The options vary widely in price, range, and purpose. But together they offer much-needed freedom and flexibility for exploring the natural beauty of Oahu, as well as its many tourist sights.

Tip: Even with so many options, I tend to stay in Waikiki where I can scoot/wheel/walk to restaurants, hotels, and beaches, and then just venture out on daytrips as time and budget permits. But I like cities, so I’m biased.

One of the most exciting options is going to open soon — Oahu’s forthcoming light rail/train! This is going to be a gamechanger–it will make seamless the transportation between Pearl Harbor,  Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), Waikiki, etc.. It is opening in phases, with the more touristy locations opening around 2030. Lightrails are the cheapest, most accessible, and convenient forms of public transportation in my opinion, so I am beyond excited for this to open.
