Owners Tim and Ty Lai started Fly Shuttle Tours and Transportation in 2008 as a small two-vehicle start up. As Tim puts it: “Two vans and two ‘mans’”.


The brothers, originally from San Diego, arrived in Hawaii after selling auto body and auto paint businesses.


“We drove for another shuttle service after relocating here, and we both realized that we liked it but wanted to own our own business again. So in 2008 we bought two vans and started Fly Shuttle.”


By providing superior service and hands-on guidance Fly Shuttle has grown to include 22 employees and 22 vehicles in their fleet.


“We still get behind the wheel and drive,” adds Ty. “Driving keeps us close to our customers and gives us the feedback we need to continuously improve our customer experience.”


Today, Fly Shuttle employs drivers who are “friendly, honest, funny and have detailed knowledge of the island and Hawaiian culture. We’re proud to have the best drivers in our industry.”


When you book a shuttle, tour or car service with Fly Shuttle, you can rest assured that the strictest safety protocols are being followed. “We sanitize our vans after each trip and our drivers wear protective equipment,” adds Tim. “We’re dedicated to ensuring a healthy environment for our guests.”
