DOUBLE DECK BUSES ON MAUI?

Officials with the Department of Transportation will attend a demonstration today by vendors who are looking to bring double-deck transit buses to Maui.  The county is considering purchase, but has not made a decision at this time.

The vendor, Alexander Dennis, builds integrated city buses featuring a lightweight, but strong aluminum body structure.

The Enviro500 version of the bus can carry more than 100 people in a vehicle measuring 40 feet in length.

The double-deck buses are already used in Hong Kong and parts of North America for both city transit and sight seeing operations.

ADDS STOPS ON LAHAINA VILLAGER ROUTE

Beginning today, the Maui Bus extends morning service to Central Maui.  Service on the Kahului and Wailuku Loops now begins at 6:30 instead of 7 a.m.  Due to low-ridership on the Connector route between Wailuku and Kahului, service on that commuter route ended yesterday.  In addition, four stops have been added to the Lahaina Villager route including stops at 505 Front Street, the Lahaina Gateway Center and two stops further up Lahainaluna Road.
