Bus fares for the double-decker will be $2 per person or $4 per day -- the same as those for all other buses that are part of the Maui Bus fleet.

The bus was purchased used for $378,362 and can carry about 90 passengers, which is double the amount of an average bus.

The double-decker bus was selected for the Kihei Islander route to help accommodate the large number of residents and visitors who use the Maui Bus to travel between Central and South Maui on a daily basis.
