A 21st Century Shaka from TheBus

Honolulu has the worst traffic in the nation, which means we need a little more aloha in our commute than most cities. Thankfully, TheBus is doing its part: Let one of its new, fuel-efficient buses in front of you, and you just might get an electronic shaka as a mahalo. Michelle Kennedy, director of marketing and communications for Oahu Transit Services, says, “The drivers of the new buses have a little switch they can hit that flashes the shaka on the back sign. In the old buses, you have to lean out the window and stick your arm out into traffic to say thanks. This just makes it a lot easier.”
