Meeting set on shuttle service

LIHUE — A presentation and panel discussion on a proposed North Shore shuttle service will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Ha Coffee Bar.

The free event is co-sponsored by The Hanalei Initiative and Community Coalition Kauai, two groups that have been involved in developing a plan for a transportation system aimed at reducing traffic congestion on the North Shore.

Thursday’s meeting will begin with a presentation by Joel Guy, president of the Hanalei-to-Haena Community Association. Guy said Tuesday he plans to talk about some of the challenges of managing transportation on the North Shore as well as potential solutions to those problems.

Guy said he will look at examples from different parts of the island to see how other communities have approached visitor management as a way to understand what methods have worked.

Guy’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion.

Access to Black Pot Beach Park and the Wainiha/Haena area has been restricted since the April floods, creating increased congestion at Hanalei’s two popular beach parks and along Weke Road, creating traffic situations that often become unmanageable.

    The state cannot find enough money to support the Kaua’i Bus. Why not?

    Some one oversees the Bus company. What does he do? He has to pay for the services and promote bus fare and it is a good travel for anyone. What actually does he promote? This person who takes out money must be someone of trust worthiness. Handling huge amounts of revenue going into the bus company. Who is that person? Whereby money into the company flows through and it flows through this person. State employees
