Groundbreaking ceremony held for Central Maui Transit Hub

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday morning to mark the beginning of construction of the County of Maui Department of Transportation Central Maui Transit Hub. The project will be located off of Vevau Street near Kane Street in Kahului and will replace the current transit hub on the Wailuku side of Queen Ka`ahumanu Center.

“This will be Maui County's first transit hub designed and built to serve those who choose public transportation. It's great news for the community and the environment,” Mayor Michael Victorino said. "This project will enable safe, convenient travel and access for people of all ages and abilities.”

In fiscal year 2020, the Maui Bus fixed route system had 1.37 million boardings. Work is expected to be completed by the end of the calendar year.

When complete, the new Transit Hub will include a ticket office, ADA accessible restrooms, covered seating, bike racks, lighting and cans for trash and recycling.

“We’re very thankful for the continued support from our state legislators and our County Council,” County of Maui Department of Transportation Director Marc Takamori said. “We’re excited to begin construction of our new, centrally located transit hub. This project will provide comfortable seating, shade, lighting and security for everyone who relies on public transportation.”

The County is working in partnership with the State of Hawaii, Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation and its project team including Fukumoto Engineering, Riecke Sunnland Kono Architects, Munekiyo Hiraga, West Maui Construction and Bowers+Kubota.
