Route 87 Downtown & UH Manoa to Kailua & Enchanted Lake

This route is a modification of Route 87. The purpose of this route is to provide AM and PM express service between Kailua/Enchanted Lake and Honolulu/University area. The first trip of the day goes directly to UH Manoa. The second and third AM trips start at Aikahi Park Shopping Center then goes to Downtown, then to the University area. The first and second PM trips start at Kapiolani Boulevard and Date Street then goes directly to Kailua. The third and fourth PM trips start at Downtown then goes directly to Kailua.

Description of Changes

The four major route alignment changes are:

  1. All trips will service Hele Street and Kupau Street.
  2. Remove service on Kailua Road between Oneawa Street and Ulukahiki Street.
  3. All AM Honolulu-bound trips: will begin at Aikahi Park Shopping Center on Kaneohe Bay Drive instead of Kalanianaole Highway and Aoloa Street.
  4. All PM Kailua-bound trips: will end at Aikahi Park Shopping Center on Kaneohe Bay Drive instead of continuing into the Kaneohe area.

Service to areas bypassed by this change will be provided by other route connections (see the new Routes 66, 67, and 85). Express Bus Service to Kaneohe Bay Drive will be provided by Route 85.
