The Honolulu Rail Transit Project was established in 2005 with the support of state and local officials to provide an efficient and reliable transportation alternative for Honolulu's congested urban corridor. The rail route runs from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center, with stations at 21 key commuter and visitor destinations, including Aloha Stadium, Pearl Harbor, Honolulu International Airport and downtown Honolulu's major core commercial and business centers. The elevated rail system will not be affected by accidents or congested streets and highways and will deliver riders to their destination on time, every time. Honolulu's modern, fully automated electric-powered rail system will take 40,000 vehicles off our roads daily by 2030, and have the ability to use renewable energy sources, reducing Hawaii's dependence on fossil fuels. Rail transit will mean less time spent in traffic and reliable and affordable transportation, enhancing quality of life for Oahu's residents. The first section of the rail system from Kapolei to Aloha Stadium is slated to begin operating in 2015; the second portion extending to Middle Street in 2017; and the system will be fully operational to Ala Moana Center in 2019.
