The County of Maui, Department of Management announced the launch of a free transportation shuttle service to Wailuku Town, starting Wednesday, Oct. 7. Shuttles will run Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

The free shuttle service called, “Da Bee,” features two brand-new, 22-seater vehicles. The shuttles are both low-emission, ADA accessible and include seat belts. The service is part of the County’s mitigation efforts to reduce traffic during the Wailuku Town Improvement Project.

Employees who work in Wailuku can park for free at the Maui Lani Safeway and catch Da Bee shuttles to various “flower” stops in Wailuku. Residents in the Kehalani area can also hop on board for a quick ride to work and other stops in town. 

“We encourage employees who work in Wailuku to start riding Da Bee, and enjoy these brand new, air-conditioned shuttle buses,” said Mayor Michael Victorino. “Not only will these shuttles take you safely and comfortably to your destination, but it’s also a great opportunity to get a head start on riding this convenient mode of transportation as Wailuku prepares for construction of the new parking structure.

“We want to mahalo Maui Lani Safeway and the Weinberg Foundation for partnering with us to provide this free and accessible shuttle for our community.”

To celebrate the launch of Da Bee, riders who complete a short online survey during the month of October will receive a free lunch tote. Complete the survey by visiting www.WailukuLive.com/DaBee.

Two separate routes are available. Shuttles stops are marked by hexagon bus signs and colorful sidewalk stickers featuring Native Hawaiian flowers: Nau, ‘Ohia Lehua, ‘Ilima, and Ma‘o.
