Craig Farrar of Alliance LLC hooks up a small solar panel on the roof of a Maui County bus stop on South Kihei Road near the intersection with Ohukai Road last week. He then leans in to test the LED lights and make sure they shine. Farrar said that the stop with its blue roof is just one of several design themes used for stops around the island. He said one of the next bus stops he will be working on in Makawao will feature a yellow wagon wheel as part of the roof and side. "They're made of aluminum, so they should last forever," he said of the new bus stops.
