HONOLULU (KHON) — Mayor Caldwell and state officials held a news conference on Friday to discuss upcoming changes coming to TheBus.
With people being urged to stay home, TheBus is making some changes.
Effective Wednesday, April 1 at 12:01 a.m., TheBus will be operating on a State holiday schedule.
That will be Monday through Fridays. Regular service will resume on the weekends.
The City says that it will evaluate every single route to see if it needs to adjust trips and vehicle types to ensure social distancing can occur.
“When it comes to the bus system it is important to understand that yes, we want people to stay at home and work at home, but also the flip side of that is that there are some essential workers that have to make essential trips that we want to accommodate,” said Wes Frysztacki of the Department of Transportation Services.
As for the monthly bus pass that was purchased for the month of April, officials say it will also be honored for the month of May.
TheBus pass office in Kalihi will be closed on Monday, march 30.
