Free Kauai Bus rides offered during Tropic Care

LIHUE — To enable residents and visitors to access free basic medical, dental and vision services through Tropic Care, the county will be offering free rides on all of The Kauai Bus routes from June 20-29.

“We are pleased to partner once again with the Kauai District Health Office and the Department of Defense Reserve Affairs on Tropic Care,” said Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for the public to obtain health care services at no cost to them.”

“At the same time that Tropic Care is happening, I encourage the public to take advantage of riding the bus for free,” the mayor added. “Hopefully, they will see the benefits of public transportation and help us move towards becoming a more sustainable community.”

Approximately 280 reservists will be coming to the island for Tropic Care to provide free health care services, including physical and eye exams and eyeglasses. Dental exams, tooth extractions and fillings also will be offered.

The clinic sites are Eleele Elementary School, Kauai Community College and Kapaa Middle School. The clinics will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On June 26, they will close at 12 p.m.

A complete list of all bus routes can be found on The Kauai Bus website,
