Terminus stops provide ‘recovery’ time for buses

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jul 24, 2013

~~<p><strong><span style="font-size: 12px;">Question</span></strong><span style="font-size: 12px;">: I routinely see a city bus parked at the bus stop at Date Street and University Avenue, especially in the mornings. This is along the side of the McCully-Moiliili Fire Station. This effectively blocks the right lane, and since the bus is so near the intersection, it&rsquo;s difficult to see pedestrians until entering the intersection. Should the bus stop be used to park buses? Could a less obstructive location be used to park the buses?</span></p>
<p><strong>Answer</strong>: There is a reason buses periodically park at that stop, as well as others around the island, and it has to do with schedules and timing.</p>
