Route 61 Kalihi to Kaneohe & Aikahi

This route is a modification of Route 56. The purpose of this route is to provide service between Kaneohe and Kalihi Transit Center. You will still be able to reach Aikahi Park Shopping Center, Windward City Shopping Center, Windward Mall, and Windward Community College on this route. All stops on Kaneohe Bay drive will continue to be served.\n

Description of Changes

The four major route alignment changes are:

  1. Remove service from Keahala Road.
  2. Travel along Likelike Highway instead of Pali Highway to provide new service to the Kalihi Transit Center.
  3. Travel along Kaneohe Bay Drive and Kamehameha Highway between Mokulele Drive and Pua Inia Street to shorten travel time to the Kalihi Transit Center.
  4. Trips are interlined with Route 66; TheBus head-sign will change to route 66 (Downtown to Kailua, Aikahi) at Aikahi Park Shopping Center.

Provide service between Kalihi Transit Center and Kaneohe via Likelike Highway. Local service to areas bypassed by this change will be provided by other routes (see the new Route 63).
