Due to the partial closure of Kaʻahumanu Avenue this afternoon (on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019), to accommodate the Maui Fair Parade, Maui Bus service will be re-routed and specific bus stops will not be in service.
The County of Maui Department of Transportation announced the following changes:

The remaining bus routes will operate as normal with some deviation in street routing, but will continue to serve all other existing bus stops. Passengers are asked to expect delays in pick-up times due to the increased traffic during the parade.
During the Maui Fair operational hours, the Wailuku Loop Route #1 and the Wailuku Reverse Loop Route #2 will not service any of the bus stops on Kanaloa Avenue, due to the heavy traffic in the area. These buses will be re-routed onto Wahine Pio Avenue during Fair hours.
Maui Bus Commuter parking, normally allowed at the War Memorial Stadium parking lot, will be relocated to the Kahului Boat Ramp during the Maui Fair from Tuesday, Oct. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 6.
