“As always, the FBI is focused on ensuring our partners at Oahu Transit Services have everything they need to return to normal operations, and we will do everything we can to impose risk and consequences on those responsible for this attack,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Steven Merrill.
Thursday’s cyberattack caused TheHandi-Van online reservation system, TheBus app and the HOLO card call center to go offline.
As of Saturday, Dec. 11, TheBus is running with little to no delay and TheHandi-Van reservation system is back to regularly scheduling rides up to three days in advance.
