PRINCEVILLE — The North Shore Shuttle, which has transported residents and visitors between Princeville and Ke‘e Beach over the last three months, will end today.
The news was announced in a Sunday evening email from the county.
“We would like to thank the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) for providing the funding for this program, along with our other partners, Princeville Development Corp. and Hawaii Executive Transportation and their dedicated drivers and staff,” said George Costa, director of the Office of Economic Development. “Both our visitors and residents benefited from the shuttle service as it provided another transportation alternative in the Hanalei-Haena area.”
Costa said that he will continue his efforts to seek long-term funding sources from private sector partners and other grant funding opportunities for the shuttle service.
Funding for the North Shore Shuttle was provided through an HTA grant of $300,000 with $160,000 going towards the shuttle and $140,000 for cultural restoration projects in Hā‘ena.
