Study Reveals Preliminary Transit Plans

By Darren Pai

HONOLULU (KHNL) - Starting in Kapolei, the proposed fixed-guideway route features a transit station a park-and-ride on the future campus of the University of Hawaii-West Oahu.

Heading along Farrington Highway, Pearl Highlands hosts a transit stop and park-and-ride.

Aloha Stadium features another station and park-and-ride before the route passes through Salt Lake.

Three stations line Dillingham Boulevard on the way into Downtown Honolulu.

Additional stops follow the line through Downtown and Kakaako to Ala Moana Center.

City transit consultants estimated 95,000 daily trips aboard a Kapolei-Ala Moana route by the year 2030. That figure was based on the line passing Honolulu International Airport. The Salt Lake alignment will likely change that estimate.

The same study puts travel time between Kapolei and Downtown Honolulu aboard a fixed guideway system at 65 minutes in 2030. A trip from Downtown to Ala Moana Center clocks in at 17 minutes. Again, those numbers could change with the Salt Lake alignment.

Consultants estimated the city would need to acquire 139 parcels of land along the Kapolei-Ala Moana route. As with other projections, that number assumed a line passing the airport, so that number will likely need adjustment.
