HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - How much should a ride on the rail line cost?

The Honolulu Rate Commission wants to hear from the public at three upcoming meetings.

Community members can give input on March 3 at Kapolei Hale, March 5 at the Kailua District Park Community Room, and March 10 at the Mission Memorial Building meeting room.

All meetings begin at 6:30 p.m.

Some of the questions before the rate commission:

  • Should single ride fares increase by 25 cents for TheBus and rail.
  • Should a daily cap of $7.50 be set for adult riders?
  • Should a daily cap of $3.75 be set for youth riders?

Written testimony can be submitted to Howard Chee at hchee@honolulu.gov.
