FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SATURDAY BUS SHUTTLE SERVICE AVAILABLE TOMORROW ONLY
Mayor Jeremy Harris announced today that the City will add Saturday bus shuttle service to assist people who need to get into town for work or shopping or to get around within their community.
Chinatown Gateway Plaza, at the intersection of Hotel and Bethel streets, will continue as “grand central” for most of the school buses that will run shuttle service tomorrow only (Saturday, Sept. 6).
The free shuttles will run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. but riders are asked to be flexible as the 15 school buses will not run on an exact schedule. Signs will be posted at the shuttle stops to aid riders.
All routes will run on a circular route. Six of the routes will circle through Chinatown Gateway Plaza while the other two (North Shore and Mililani-Wahiawa-Haleiwa) will circle within those communities.
Mayor Harris said, “Due to the bus strike, many people have been without any way of doing their essential errands over the past 10 days. We hope this Saturday service can bring some relief to them.”
