Maui Bus Passes - New Pricing


Starting July 1st, the price of our local bus pass will be going down!

The County of Maui Department of Transportation announced today that changes to the Maui Bus monthly pass system, effective July 1, 2009, will reduce the cost of general All Route monthly bus passes from $45.00 per month to $35.00 per month; reduce the cost of student and senior (55 years and older) All Route monthly bus passes from $40.00 per month to $30.00 per month; and eliminate Single Route and Commuter monthly bus passes.

The All Route monthly bus pass is valid for unlimited rides on all Maui Bus routes including the commuter service. "The changes are intended to streamline the bus pass system, making Maui Bus even more efficient to meet the needs of the County's growing ridership," said Don Medeiros, County of Maui Director of Transportation.

Also effective July 1, 2009, monthly bus passes will be valid for a calendar month, from the first to the last day of the month.  Monthly bus passes will be available for purchase from the 25th of the previous month, and remain on sale until the 10th of each month.  Rides on all Wailuku and Kahului Loops and the Lahaina Villager route are free; single ride fares of $1 are available on Maui Bus' seven other routes: Kihei Villager, Kihei Islander, Upcountry Islander, Haiku Islander, Lahaina Islander, Kaanapali Islander and Napili Islander.

Beginning this Thursday, June 25, the new July 2009 bus passes will be available for purchase:

  • From Maui Bus drivers;
  • At the Maui County Business Resource Center, in the Maui Mall (mall hours);
  • At the Wharf Cinema Center Management Office (weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding holidays).

Georgina, That's so odd to read, nothing ever goes down!  Here they just increased the prices of public transportation, especially on our trains :(

Carole - our bus system is still evolving.  I think because more people are now using the service, it's becoming more efficient and they can adjust the price accordingly.

Russell - I cut and pasted most of the text from a Press Release email - so it's not my content, except the picture - didn't want to claim it as my own.  I don't need points THAT bad. lol

Our mass transit system (bus and trolley) announced that they are increasing prices. I guess San Diego and California are in more of a budget crisis than Maui -- LOL.
