Honolulu opens transit center, unveils Gilligs

Posted on August 7, 2012

Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle joined transportation officials to dedicate the new Alapai Transit Center and 48 new fuel-efficient buses.

“The Alapai Transit Center is a great addition to our award-winning bus system,” Carlisle said. “The center provides a safe, clean, efficient terminal for passengers served by some of our busiest bus routes.”

The center includes four bus shelters with a total of 140 seats, informational boards, a landscaped bicycle and pedestrian path, and a bus layover area under the parking garage for the new Joint Traffic Management Center now under design.

The new Gillig buses feature the most current EPA-certified clean diesel ISL Cummins engine, the latest fuel efficient Voith 5-speed transmission, and an “all-electric” ThermoKing air conditioning system that provides for quieter operation and a more stable passenger compartment temperature.

The City is acquiring 40 40-foot buses and eight 35-foot buses. All 48 buses are equipped with an ADA access ramp, front kneeling capability and bike racks.
