HONOLULU (KHNL) - Honolulu's new intra-island ferry service has reached a milestone. More than 10,000 passengers have boarded TheBoat in the first six weeks of service.
The 10,000th passenger was among those on Tuesday's 4:20 PM run from Aloha Tower to Kalaeloa.
"We are happy that so many people have chosen to use this new service," said Mayor Mufi Hannemann. "TheBoat is providing our residents with a choice they never had before, a choice to use a ferry linked to bus service. I've always said we are looking to offer people options in an integrated, multi-modal transportation system, and I'm pleased that they are taking advantage of 'TheBoat.'"
