Rail Transit System to Make Stop at Airport

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced Friday plans to add a stop at the Honolulu International Airport from the main rail transit route.

The rail system will begin in Kapolei and will end at Ala Moana Shopping Center.

A new route from the Middle Street stop to the airport, which is 2.1 miles, will be added to accommodate those who don't live in Kapolei.

The extended airport stop is estimated at $350 million.
