The City Welcomes Robert Yu As President And General Manager Of Oahu Transit Services, Inc.
HONOLULU - The City and County of Honolulu's Department of Transportation Services (DTS) is proud to welcome Robert Yu as President and General Manager of Oʻahu Transit Services, Inc. (OTS), the non-profit organization that manages TheBus and Handi-Van. Robert starts his new position on July 1, 2021.
Robert Yu spent 26 years at OTS as the Senior Vice President and Deputy General Manager, the Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration and the Chief Internal Auditor. He left the organization in 2017.
“Robert is a highly skilled leader who is highly respected for his knowledge and competence in public transit,” said Mayor Rick Blangiardi. “Honolulu’s Bus System, along with our Handi-Van Service, have been recognized as one of the very best in the country, and we are most grateful Robert has decided to lead this critical component of our core City operations.”
Yu served as Deputy Director of the State Department of Budget and Finance since January 2019. He is a certified public accountant who also worked at Hawaiian Electric Industries and had been the Chief Financial Officer at Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation from 2017 to 2018.
“Robert Yu is a great choice as the President and General Manager OTS,” says DTS Director Roger Morton. “I’ve known Robert for over thirty years and have full confidence in his ability to lead our TheBus and Handi-Van system at this critical time as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis and as our economy transitions back to normal.”
Yu also served in community leadership roles with the Chinese Chamber of Commerce and the See Yup Society, Hawai‘i.
“I look forward to working with the OTS employees and our partners at the City and County of Honolulu to provide the best service to our transit customers,” said Yu.
