Effective Sunday, December 13, 2020, eastbound service for Routes 11, 51, 52, 53, 54, and 88A will be rerouted from Hotel Street to the King Street Bus Only Lane.  There is no change to westbound service on Beretania Street.  See the map below for details.

 

Routes 11, 51, 52, 53, 54, and 88A provide service between outlying areas and Honolulu.  Rerouting to the King Street Bus Only Lane reduces travel times for these lengthy routes and less routes on Hotel Street improves travel times for the other routes.  All other routes serving Hotel Street will not change.
