Q: A friend told me about two women in their 80s who were waiting for the Maui Bus near Ah Fook's Supermarket at Kahului Shopping Center. The women missed the bus because the bus driver did not see them. Because it was raining, the women were waiting under the eaves instead of out in the open. However, since they did not want to block the entrance to Ah Fook's, they were waiting in front of the next store down - which was even farther away from the bus stop. Apparently, no one needed to get off at the shopping center so the bus driver did not stop. What are Maui Bus riders supposed to do when it's raining or very hot and there is no bus shelter? Also, what are drivers instructed to do so they don't miss riders like these elderly women? Luckily, they managed to call a friend who was able to pick them up, but not everyone will be that fortunate.
