FREE WiFi on TheBoat 

 

Laptop computer users will be able to enjoy free wireless service on TheBoat beginning tomorrow (Friday, September 28th). 

“This is just one more amenity we want to provide for people who are choosing TheBoat to make their morning and evening commutes,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “I again want to express my thanks to the folks at D.R. Horton who have joined with us in making this public-private partnership possible.”

Tomorrow is the final day of fare free service on TheBoat.

Week 2 of the city’s new commuter choice continues to show widespread popular acceptance among island residents.

Wednesday’s 4:20 pm departure from Aloha Tower to Kalaeloa was filled to capacity.  149 passengers were on board the Melissa Ann for the commute to west Oahu.  It’s believed this is the first time an intra-island ferry system ran full.  The number of riders every day this week is up over the same day a week earlier.

“I can’t tell you how pleased we are that so many residents are choosing to ride TheBoat,” said Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “This confirms that our residents are looking for transportation choices, something that’s been lacking for far too long.”

            In the next several days, Hannemann said, the city will add 30 free parking spaces in Kapolei. 

            “We want people to let us know via our website, www.trytheboat.com, how they think TheBoat service can be enhanced,” Hannemann said.  “After just nine days of service, however, we see mostly positive support for TheBoat, and we have every reason to believe that this trend will continue.”
