Kaua'i Adopts Transportation Plan
The Kaua'i Multimodal Land Transportation Plan (MLTP). was adopted by Kaua'i County Council by a vote of 7 to 0 on January 30, 2013. The long range plan, prepared by Charlier Associates, Inc., is Kaua'i’s first multimodal transportation plan and includes sections on public transit, bicycle facilities, pedestrian facilities, county roads and streets, agriculture transportation, and land use. A major component of the plan includes the first long-range plan for The Kaua'i Bus, the islands’ popular and rapidly growing public transit system.
Several aspects of the plan have already been implemented including the formation of a Transportation Coordinating Committee to oversee implementation of the plan elements and development of a bulk-rate discount bus pass for students of Kaua'i Community College (KCC). By adopting this plan the County has set the stage for developing a balanced multimodal transportation system that is integrated with land development patterns and that protects and enhances public health, quality of life, economic vitality and the unique character and heritage of the Garden Island.
