HONOLULU – Wes Frysztacki, the Director of the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Transportation Services (DTS) has decided to step down from his position on Wednesday, November 11th. With the administration coming to a close, Wes decided to move back to his home state of Washington, to spend more time with his family (especially his granddaughter).
“We appreciate all the dedication and hard work Wes has given to this administration and the people of the City and County of Honolulu”, said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “He’s worked tirelessly on numerous multimodal transportation issues that will serve the people of this island for years to come.”
“I have never worked so closely with so many dedicated professionals who have accomplished so much,” said Frysztacki. “The list of projects and programs is lengthy, but the achievement that gives me the greatest gratification is to know that DTS has changed for the better. One of my major goals was to make DTS a better place to work and a better organization to be more prepared to address the many challenges faced by our department. Together, I feel confident we have done that”.
Following nearly four years as the Director of DTS under the Caldwell Administration, Wes has helped push the limits of transportation for Honolulu, including the implementation of protected bicycle lanes, TheBus and TheHandi-Van improvements, Rail Operation initiatives, and the opening of the Joint Traffic Management Center. His impact upon DTS will live on through staff members, who share the same vision on making Honolulu a safer and more sustainable city through transportation options.
Jon Nouchi, the Deputy Director for DTS, will be the Acting Director for DTS for the remainder of the administration.
