Route 85 Downtown & UH Manoa to Kaneohe & Aikahi

This route is a modification of Route 85. The purpose of this route is to provide service between Kaneohe and Honolulu. The first trip of the day goes directly to UH Manoa. The first and second PM trips start at Kapiolani Boulevard and Date Street then goes directly to Kaneohe. The third PM trip starts at Downtown then directly to Kaneohe. The fourth PM trips starts at Kapiolani Boulevard and Date Street then goes to Downtown before going to Kaneohe.

Description of Changes

The three major route alignment changes are:

  1. All AM Honolulu-bound Trips: Trips begin at Aikahi Park Shopping Center on Kaneohe Bay Drive instead of Kuulei Road to shorten travel time to UH Manoa and Downtown.
  2. 2:57 PM, 3:29 PM, 4:10 PM Kaneohe-bound Trips: Trips end at Aikahi Park Shopping Center on Kaneohe Bay Drive instead of continuing into the Kailua area.
  3. 5:25 PM Kaneohe-bound Trip: Trip will be cancelled.

Service to areas bypassed by this change will be provided by other route connections (see the new Routes 61, 63, and 87).
