Join the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation as it launches its new
Shop, Dine & Shuttle” program on Sunday, December 13 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. to support local businesses along Kamehameha Highway in Pearl City and Aiea during the holiday season.

The free circulator shuttle program will feature two vehicles, including an open-air trolley and an mini-bus to take area residents and visitors from the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet to approximately a dozen shopping destinations along Kamehameha Highway.

Rides on the trolley and the mini-bus will be fun for participants as they can jump from location to location without the hassle of finding parking at the crowded shopping centers during the busy holiday shopping season. For added value, the program connects with the Aloha Stadium Swamp Meet.

Major shopping centers participating include Pearlridge Center, Waimalu Shopping Center, Waiau Shopping Center, Pearl City Shopping Center, Pearl Highlands Center, Pearl Kai Center, and many more.

Rides on both shuttles will be free for passengers, and will be based upon seating availability. In addition, HART’s “Shop & Dine on the Line” brochures that feature discounts from
100+ stores, restaurants and services will be passed out to shuttle riders.

The “Shop, Dine & Shuttle” program is presented by HART and its transportation partners, which include Move Oahu Forward and E Noa Tours.

For more information on the program, please visit or call HART’s 24-hour project hotline at (808) 566-2299.
