Honolulu aiming for summer opening
Posted on 2nd May 2023 at 11:57
The first segment of the highly anticipated Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation’s (HART) rail line could open in the summer of 2023. Honolulu Mayor Rick Blangiardi shared this during a recent speech:
“When we took office, there was no single issue that had been more consistently and passionately raised by voters than rail and what was then a historically-troubled project,” said Mayor Blangiardi. “As we embrace the challenge embodied in building the toughest segment of rail — through the airport, down Dillingham Boulevard and through the downtown corridor — we are ready for our riders to embrace rail. Our long-awaited rail system is scheduled to commence interim operations in July, with service from East Kapolei to Aloha Stadium.”
Lori M.K. Kahikina, executive director and CEO at HART, explained HART is aiming to turn the line over to the Honolulu Department of Transportation Services in late May and believes the project opening in July is achievable.
Segment 1 is currently trial running and will include eight stations in a system that will also integrate with Honolulu’s bus system.
