Kauaʻi Bus officials have announced that all bus services on Sundays, including paratransit, are suspended until further notice, due to an ongoing staffing shortage.

After conducting a thorough review of operations, officials determined that Sunday bus service receives the lowest ridership of the week with an average of 10 passengers per route. An average of 25 passengers per route take the Kauaʻi Bus on weekdays and an average of 13 passengers per route utilize services on Saturdays.

Sunday bus service will remain suspended until staffing has returned to sufficient levels.
