TheBus, Honolulu’s bus transit system, is the only mass transit system to be honored twice by the American Public Transportation Association, the Oscars of mass transit.  TheBus is also credited with the lowest cost per mile of any U.S. system.  No wonder so many people today wonder why Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, cannot be expanded to address O‘ahu’s traffic mess.  Honolulu’s current bus network was developed during the Harris administration under Transportation Services Director, Cheryl Soon.
