Proposed Changes for Maui Bus Routes

Maui Bus collected feedback on the proposed route and schedule changes between November 15 and December 31, 2021, through pop-up meetings at major transit stops, an online survey, and a virtual public hearing on Facebook Live. The project team is currently using the public feedback to come up with recommendations for the Maui Bus system that may be implemented over the next few years. Keep an eye out for updates in Spring 2022.

The proposed changes are split across four areas of the island: Central Maui, West Maui, South Maui, Upcountry and Haiku. You can view the proposed changes for for each area below:

 

Central Maui

Existing Routes
Proposed Routes
Proposed Changes
  • Routes 1 and 2 would be split into two separate routes.

  • Routes 5 and 6 would also be split into two separate routes. Buses would arrive every 30 minutes instead of every hour.

  • Route 3 is a new route connecting the Kahului Airport with Queen Kaahumanu Center. Buses would arrive every 30 minutes.

  • Route 8 would be replaced with on-demand service.

 

What is on-demand service?

On-demand service is a flexible transit option that allows people to request trips by phone or smartphone app. Trips must start and end within a specified zone. Trips are usually shared with others traveling in the same general direction.
