Honolulu Rail Transit Project

The rail transit system project will be a raised rail transit line that will start at East Kapolei and end at Ala Moana Center near Waikiki. It will pass through Ewa, Waipahu, Pearl City, Salt Lake, Kalihi, and Downtown Honolulu. Also there will be an extension build to include the University of Hawaii Manoa campus and Waikiki.

This project’s plan was to build a 34-mile rail line that would cost $2.6 billion, however the plan changed and the rail line has been reduce to 20 miles and costing taxpayers $5.3 billion. It will require the acquisition of 160 acres. In those areas,  20 residences, 67 businesses and one church will be forced to relocate or be displaced.
