The Kaua'i North Shore Shuttle is a visitors primary service system for the Hā’ena State Park which includes the Ke'e Beach area and Kalalau Trail access at the end of the road. With limited park access and very limited reserved parking each day, we expect the Kaua'i North Shore Shuttle to transport a significant number of park attendees to Hā’ena State Park and in the process help keep a significant amount of traffic off of the small congested historic roadway - delivering many benefits for both residents and visitors.

A Kaua'i North Shore Shuttle reservation (which will include a visitors required Hā’ena State Park day pass. Residents will not need a reservation for park entrance) will be necessary to access Hā'ena State Park if the reserved parking lot is full.
