“Speaking about bus issues, I need to address an important Maui Bus safety issue in this column. In the last two weeks of 2016 Maui Bus employees have reported that someone had been shooting at bus windows with some sort of BB or pellet gun, shattering bus windows.

No one was reported injured however this is a very dangerous situation.

There were four reported shooting incidents in December, with the last one taking place on December 30th. All of the shootings at Maui Buses took place along the Wailuku Loop bus route.

Roberts Hawaiʻi, which has the contract for our bus drivers, has filed a police report for each shooting incident.

This is not a game. Please stop shooting at our buses as someone could be seriously injured.

I ask that anyone with information about any of these incidents please call the Maui Police Department non-emergency line at 244-6400. Mahalo.”
