Maui Bus (Public Transportation)

When I first came here in 1994, I was surprised that there was no public buses! Coming from the busy city of Manila, I expected that there would be some type of public transportation here. But no! Guess what I had to do the next few weeks of my arrival? Yep - I had to learn how to drive. It's either I learn how to drive or I get stuck at home!

Now there are Maui Busses going around. They are not a lot, and they are not bulky. They look like little tourist buses going around. However, they now have a regular route and poeple on Maui are getting the hang of using it. It's very helpful to whose who do not know how to drive, or just want to save gas.

Just curious..what's your opinion on Maui Busses? like or dislike?

"Yes they need to add more bus stops, especially in Kahului and Wailuku. I only see a few and Kihei has the most. But now with bigger buses I've seen, they should hopefully expand their service."

"I thing the Maui Bus system is off to a pretty good start. But it is just a start, and I hope they continue to expand. Ridership is limited by present routes, and the number of stops located on the routes. If you live nearby a shopping mall, or one of the few and far between bus stops, then it is great. However, more bus stops are needed to make it more convenient for people. AND, shoulder room for the bus to stop needs to be added so the bus will not hold up traffic on it's frequent stops. The more convenient it is to use, the more people will use it. "
