The County of Maui Department of Transportation has announced that beginning Friday, December 7, select Maui Bus routes will change.
Updates to the following routes include:
Kahului Loop #5 and Kahului Reverse Loop #6: Both routes will no longer go into Kahului Shopping Center. These routes will use the bus stops on Kamehameha Avenue, near the Salvation Army and across of Kahului Union Church.
Wailuku Loop #1 and Wailuku Reverse Route #2: To address the frequent delays on these routes due to heavy traffic, these buses will no longer service the two bus stops in Waiehu Heights.
Waihee Villager Route #8: The Waihee Villager will add the two bus stops in Waiehu Heights to its route.
Lahaina Villager Route #23: Minor time adjustments to existing stops have been made within the route.
To notify riders, the department this week is posting laminated signs at about 70 stops that are impacted; signs and voice announcements aboard buses are being released; and text messages to riders are going out, among other notices.
Maui Bus fares are $2 boarding or $4 for a daily pass. Monthly passes are also available.
The revised schedule of the specific routes will be posted on the county website. Riders are able to track their bus in real time and get arrival predictions using the Maui Bus app, available on iOS and Android or at mauibus.org.
