Maui Bus to reduce Fare Rates for seniors, disabled

and other riders starting July 1

 

The County of Maui Department of Transportation announced that beginning Monday, July 1, 2019, the Maui Bus is implementing reduced single boarding fares of $1.00 for fixed route service. This reduced fare applies to seniors (55 years& older), paratransit eligible and person with a disability (with pertinent valid ID), and Medicare card holders.

Seniors 55 years and older will need to show a valid ID displaying their date of birth. Paratransit eligible persons will need to show a valid Paratransit ID card. Persons with a disability will need to show their valid persons with a disability fixed route ID card. Medicare card holders will need to show their valid Medicare card.

These reduced fares are being offered because public transportation law requires public transportation agencies that receive Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funding under the Section 5307 Urbanized Area Formula Program to offer half fare or reduced fares on the fixed route service.

General fares for the Maui Bus are $2.00 per boarding or $4.00 for a daily pass. Monthly passes are also available.

The Maui Bus schedule is available on the County website at www.mauicounty.gov/bus. Riders are able to track their bus in real-time and get arrival predictions using the Maui Bus app, available on iOS and Android devices or at mauibus.org.

For more information, please call the Department of Transportation at 270-7511.
