FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MORE THAN 1,000 CALL CITY VAN PROGRAM
More than 1,000 calls have been taken since Saturday for the City Van Program.
Around 320 people have signed up for the service from seven outlying areas to downtown and Waikiki. The area requesting the most rides into town was Kaneohe, followed by Kapolei, Pearl City and Waipahu.
Calls are no longer being taken as the briefing of van drivers and arrangements are in their final stage. Should there be a bus strike, a total of 45 drivers will go out into the community tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. to bringing bus riders into town. They include a combination of City appointees and civil servants.
Mayor Harris will be driving a van leaving from the Kalihi site which is at the bus stop by Kapalama Elementary School across from Kam Shopping Center. His first run will leave at 6 a.m.
