Honolulu Alapai Transit Center
The Alapai Transit Center on Hawaii’s Island of Oahu, directly east of Honolulu City Hall and the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building, is the central transit facility that disperses passengers across Oahu to both the windward and the leeward sides of the island.
Located along South King Street at Alapai Street with views north towards Punchbowl Crater, the Alapai Transit Center is part of the larger Joint Traffic Management Center which includes the JTMC Building, the JTMC Parking Structure and the four bus drop-off passenger shelters known as the Alapai Transit Center. The design of the passenger shelter’s is composed of two elements: a cast-in-place concrete wall and an aluminum clad roof that shelters passengers from the heat and inclement weather.
The roof of the shelter’s is placed with a series of skylights that provide a welcoming experience for passengers during the day to see upward to the sky and a well-lit safe experience and night. The cast-in-place concrete wall has a single large opening, with a bicycle & jogging path located on the rear side, to provide visibility and safety across the site.
