What do transit services do with buses when they reach the end of their lifespan? In Honolulu, they’re making them into transitional homes for homeless people.
Nonprofit Quarterly reports that the project to do so is the result of a partnership with the city and a local architecture firm, which will be renovating the buses into living and recreational areas while other buses will be outfitted solely with bathrooms and showers.
The effort relies heavily on volunteers to help convert the buses and materials being donated by local and national organizations.
It’s not clear yet where the buses will be parked for this.
