Paratransit has bus coupon booklet
Monthly and daily passes for riders on paratransit buses operated by Maui Economic Opportunity will be eliminated and replaced with a coupon booklet program beginning July 1.
Maui County’s Department of Transportation announced changes in various Maui Bus fares and passes this week. MEO runs the Maui Bus Americans with Disabilities Act paratransit system, offering curb-to-curb rides by reservation for qualified persons with disabilities within three-fourths of a mile on either side of a Maui Bus route.
Paratransit riders have been able to purchase $45 monthly passes from MEO for unlimited rides for the month with the nonprofit agency subsidizing the cost for low income riders above the $45.
The program will now be replaced by a 12-ride (one-way trip) ticket booklet, which will cost $20. Coupons will be valid from July 1 to June 30, 2022.
Sales of the coupon booklets begin June 25 and may be purchased from bus drivers. Drivers could assist riders with the removal of the ticket from the booklet and to place the coupon in the farebox.
General boarding fares (one-way trips) remain at $2 per boarding, cash only.
