Bus changes target
The Route 11 bus will also go through downtown on Hotel Street in both directions, rather than on Beretania Street in the Waianae-bound direction and will begin and end at the Alapai Transit Center, instead of Ala Moana Center.
Bus riders will be able transfer to other buses to get to Ala Moana or UH-Manoa.
Bus riders in Moanalua and Red Hill affected by the change can still catch the Route 53 and 54 buses to and from Ala Moana and downtown Honolulu.
Other changes to the bus schedules also take effect Sunday.
About every four months, the bus company adjusts routes depending on ridership and other factors.
Since classes are about to start at UH-Manoa and some public schools, extra buses are being added on some routes to handle the greater demand.
There are also adjustments to the timing of some bus schedules because of traffic congestion, but the changes should not affect the frequency of service, Morton said.
"Congestion is making everybody go slower, including the bus," he said.
Details on the changes can be found online at thebus.org or by calling customer service at 848-4500.
