Where are the trash receptacles?
The rubbish removal grant program for Paia is up and running. We have trash receptacles in heavily used public spaces: the post office, two in the Baldwin Avenue public lot, and two in Hana Highway public lot. Trash removal is ONCE a day, by long time Paia resident Rory Pico. Currently, the program is on a limited county grant, and the receptacles made cannot be placed on Hana Highway due to the size of the sidewalk. If anyone would like to help raise funds to purchase more receptacles, please send us an email.
Where can I park in Paia?
Paia has public and private parking areas. All public parking is limited to one or two hours a day. Some merchants have private lots with validation. If you cannot find free, street parking, paid parking is available behind Paia Town Center, and paid boxes by Paia Plaza and the Paia Post office. FYI: Lunchtime is very busy. You may need to park near Paia Bay and walk into town...a five to ten minute walk. Please drive with Aloha. There's only one traffic signal at the intersection of Baldwin Avenue and Hana Highway controlling both foot and vehicle traffic.
Is there public transportation in Paia?
Yes. We have four bus stops throughout town. Headed toward Hana the bus stop is near the entrance of Paia, and one more after Charley's. The other stops headed west towards Kahului is located near Indigo gallery and Puka Puka. Fares cost $2 and here is the link for the schedule. Also, Maui has Uber/Lyft, and we see taxis drop off and pick up.
