(BIVN) – A public hearing on Hawaiʻi County’s Shared Ride Taxi Program will be held in March.
From the County of Hawaiʻi:
The Mass Transit Agency proposes to amend its administrative rules of practice and procedure and has scheduled a hearing on the rules for March 24, 2023, at the Aupuni Center Conference Room. The Public Hearing will start at 1:30 p.m.
Pursuant to Chapter 91, Section 3 of the Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes, the Mass Transit Agency proposes to revise administrative rules regarding its Shared Ride Taxi Program. The revisions repeal the previous administrative rules in their entirety. In addition, the revisions will allow the County of Hawai‘i to subsidize up to $15.40 per trip, which will result in the elimination of taxi coupons.
The meeting is also available via Zoom at the following link.
