FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SEPTEMBER 26, 2003
BUS PASS REBATE PROGRAM
City Transportation Services Director Cheryl Soon announced today a Bus Pass Rebate Program for bus riders who purchased August and September bus passes and were unable to use them due to the strike.
The rebate program also takes into consideration Mayor Jeremy Harris’ fare-free offer for next week.
Bus riders wanting a rebate check must complete a rebate form available at the Satellite City Halls or TheBus Pass Office at 811 Middle Street.
Rebate forms must be submitted by November 30, 2003, to the Department of Transportation Services, Public Transit Division, 650 So. King Street, 3rd floor. Bus passes, except for Annual Passes and Senior/Disabled Two-Year passes, must be attached to the rebate request form.
The amount of the rebate per pass follows:
Adult Monthly Pass ($1 for each day of the strike)
August $ 6.00
September $ 30.00
Adult Annual Pass (99 cents for each day of the strike)
August $ 5.94
September $ 29.70
Youth Monthly Bus Pass (45 cents for each day of the strike)
August $ 2.70
September $ 13.50
Youth Annual Bus Pass (41 cents for each day of the strike)
August $ 2.46
September $ 12.30
Senior/Disabled Two-Year Pass (3 cents for each day of the strike)
August $ 0.18
September $ 0.90
The new bus fares go into effect on October 1, 2003. Satellite City Halls and other retail establishments will begin selling the new passes tomorrow (four Satellites—Ala Moana,Windward, Pearlridge and Hawaii Kai--are open on Saturdays). An instant rebate will be applied equal to the fare-free days in October.
For example, the $40 adult monthly pass will cost $36.00. The youth monthly pass will be reduced to $18.00 for the month of October.
Annual bus pass holders may use their passes until their expiration date. Those wanting to purchase annual passes under the new rate structure should go to TheBus Pass Office at 811 Middle Street during normal working hours.
