Ten new Maui County paratransit buses blessed Wednesday

Maui County paratransit bus riders will benefit from 10 new paratransit buses, which were blessed Wednesday and should be on the road within the next two weeks.

“We’re excited that these 10 new buses will be placed into service shortly for our paratransit riders,” said Marc Takamori, director of the County of Maui Department of Transportation. “The buses have upgraded suspensions that would provide for a smoother ride.”

The Rev. John Hau‘oli Tomoso blessed the new paratransit buses at the Maui Economic Opportunity base yard in Puunene. The buses cost about $140,000 each.

The buses join the Maui Bus Americans with Disabilities Act paratransit fleet. Each can carry eight regular or four wheelchair passengers.

MEO operates the Maui Bus paratransit system, which offers curb-to-curb pickups for riders with disabilities within three-fourths of a mile of a Maui Bus route.

Patty Copperfield, director of MEO Transportation, said that the buses will be on the road in the next couple of weeks following driver training and other preparation requirements.
