HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Beginning in March, HOLO bus cards will no longer be free.

The city Department of Transportation said it will now be charging $2 for those who need a new bus pass.

HOLO cards were first introduced in 2018 and have been free ever since, but officials said they hope the new fee will encourage riders to use the card more than once — instead of throwing them away.

HOLO cards are good for 5 years.

The Transportation Department said it has distributed more than 225,000 HOLO cards over the past few years and about 70,000 people use the cards each month.

The city said new disability, senior, and low-income bus riders will still be able to obtain their first cards for free.
