Walkout Stops Oahu Buses From Running

From Times Wire Reports

An islandwide bus strike is taking some of the aloha out of Labor Day weekend, forcing Oahu residents, tourists and boogie-boarding teens to walk long distances or sit in traffic.

No talks have been scheduled since negotiations between Oahu Transit Systems and the Teamsters Union local broke down Thursday night, and there is no end in sight for the walkout by 1,300 bus workers that began Tuesday.

The bus system normally provides about 250,000 rides a day in Oahu, an island of 880,000 people.
