KPAA meets to discuss ongoing Traffic issues on Kauai's East Side

The Kauai Planning and Action Alliance is a local organization that keeps our community informed about ongoing public issues. On the east side of Kauai, traffic continues to be a key issue even with the recent drop in tourism.

On Thursday, September 25th KPAA will hold its Fall Meeting on the topic Enhancing Kaua`i's Public Transportation from 3:00 to 4:30 PM at the Kauai Community College Cafeteria. Featured speaker Janine Rapozo, Director of the County Transportation Agency, will talk about the latest plans for the Kaua`i Bus.

What are some other ways we can get people out of their cars and reduce traffic and greenhouse emissions? A discussion of transit options that could augment the Kaua`i Bus, such as park 'n' ride lots, connector shuttles, vanpools, rideshare matching services and "demand response" systems will be held. There will also be a brief update on KPAA activities. KPAA members and the public are invited at attend.

Later this year the county is supposedly going to be working on our infamous "three-lane-highway" and expanding it on the southern end of Kapaa to help eliminate one of our major traffic bottlenecks
