JTB Hawai'i and its subsidiary, Travel Plaza Transportation, introduced Hawai'i's first electric-powered commercial bus fleet in keeping with the company's commitment to be a leader at providing travelers with energy-efficient, environmentally clean ground transportation.
Three full-size buses were unveiled at a blessing ceremony at the Travel Plaza Transportation Bus Facility in central Honolulu, where they will be stored and powered utilizing a dedicated charging station installed for that purpose. The buses will initially operate routes provided by JTB in Waikīkī and downtown Honolulu, with service beginning in April.
Each bus can carry 77 passengers, reach a top speed of 65 miles per hour if needed, and can travel for 250 miles on a single charge.
