'Intermodal Pete' and the Tale of Two Bus Stations10/26/2011
He surfs, he bikes, and now he rides the bus.
Mayor Peter Carlisle dedicated not one but two new bus stations Tuesday morning, rode an in-service city bus from one ceremony to the other, and gave himself a moniker along the way: "Intermodal Pete."
In Wahiawa, Honolulu Department of Transportation Services Director Wayne Yoshioka, who served as emcee of both events, introduced Carlisle, outlined the itinerary and explained the importance of the facilities.
The two facilities — the Wahiawa Transit Center and the Middle Street Intermodal Center — are key cogs in Honolulu's forward-looking bus system. They'll facilitate expanded service in Central Oahu and are designed to integrate with the train as it gets up and running in coming years.
