Honolulu has come under fire in the past year for inadequately addressing homelessness on the island of Oahu; with police officers citing the homeless for a variety of pedestrian violations, and at least one proposal from the city council that sought to relocate the homeless to a remote island away from tourists. But the City’s Executive Director of Housing, Jun Yang, had a different idea—to retrofit retired city buses as transitional housing for the homeless. Architecture firm Group 70 International picked up the design challenge, and hopes to have at least three volunteer-built LIFT bus facilities on the road this summer. The renovated buses will provide shelter, showers and recreation for some of Honolulu’s homeless population.
