Maui Eco­nomic Op­por­tu­nity bus wash blessed

The Maui News - - COUNTY -

A Maui Eco­nomic Op­por­tu­nity bus gets washed dur­ing a bless­ing cer­e­mony last month at the agency’s trans­porta­tion fa­cil­ity. The $1.3 mil­lion bus wash was com­pleted March 20. Now, it takes two to three min­utes to wash a bus. The new equip­ment saves time and makes main­te­nance eas­ier for MEO’s fleet of 106 buses, ac­cord­ing to Deb­bie Cabebe, the agency’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer. Fund­ing for the bus wash came from Maui County, $750,000; the state, $500,000; and MEO fundrais­ing, $87,000, she said. Also blessed last month was a $675,000, diesel-pow­ered gen­er­a­tor funded by the state. The gen­er­a­tor can put out 600 kilo­watts.
