ORIGINAL POST OCT 12, 2012 As the bus shelters are being erected along SKR in North Kihei, it now appears that the newly purchased double decker style buses might be stopping there by the end of this year. Originally planned for the West side routes, numerous height challenges in that area are causing consideration of utilizing them on South Maui routes. Stay tuned for updates.
