Center to better public transportation on Maui

By Staff | Dec 5, 2013

What steps can be taken to improve public transportation on Maui?

On Thursday, Dec. 5, Maui Economic Opportunity Inc. (MEO) will host two public stakeholder meetings to discuss the development of a one-call/one-click transportation coordination center.

Accessing this center would make it easier to find information about available transportation and scheduling rides for

community members.

Slated for 10 to 11 a.m. in the Waiola Church Hall at 535 Wainee St. in Lahaina and 3 to 4 p.m. at Maui Economic Opportunity at 99 Mahalani St. in Wailuku, these meetings will inform attendees about the current Veteran’s Transportation One-Call/One-Click project secured by a grant to Maui County from the Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative.

The campaign is designed to increase collaboration among federal, state and local agencies, as well as organizations, to address mobility challenges faced by our nation’s veterans, service members and their families. Members of the public who use transit services will benefit, too.

The meetings will offer opportunities for stakeholders to provide input on the planning and development process.

Although these meetings are sponsored by the

Veterans Transportation and Community Living Initiative, all individuals interested in public transportation on Maui are encouraged to attend and offer ideas.

Thursday’s meetings are the first of many public engagement sessions planned for this process.
