Rail information center opens at Ala Moana Center

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) has unveiled a new rail transit information center at Ala Moana's satellite city hall.

The center will provide updated information on the project's progress.

 The inaugural display is one of several that will be featured at satellite city halls on Oahu. The permanent display will be updated regularly and features an aerial map of the 20‐mile route and 21 rail stations. The display includes the latest renderings of rail stations along the first 10 miles of the route, as well as facts and figures on the rail system. It also includes a model of Waipahu's West Loch rail station, which provides a preview of what some of the system's stations will look like.

"With construction well underway, it's important to provide information about our new rail system, which is the largest public works project in the state's history," said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell.   "Ala Moana Center will be a major destination and a key transit station along the rail alignment, so we felt it was appropriate to provide the latest information about the rail system to our prospective riders," said HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas.

The Ala Moana Center satellite city hall ―located on the street level of the mauka side of the shopping center near Macy's ― had more than 136,000 customers last year, city officials said.
