The Department of Transportation announced that as of 6:30 p.m. it was shutting down the Maui Bus system due to the storm. Drivers are unable to complete their routes because of low visibility from the rain and are parked in place while waiting for the storm to pass.
Drivers have been told to wait for two hours, then reassess the situation. If at all possible, drivers will then take their remaining passengers to their destination.
The Maui Bus service should continue tomorrow on its regular schedule unless this weather continues.
An announcement will be made to the media tomorrow if that happens, but otherwise bus service continues as usual.
