Honolulu’s HART unveils transit info center

Posted on March 26, 2014

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) unveiled a new rail transit information center at the Ala Moana Center's satellite city hall to provide updated information on the project's progress, according to the transit agency’s website.

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.

The display is a collaborative effort between HART, the Office of the Mayor and the city's Department of Customer Services.

"Ala Moana Center will be a major destination and a key transit station along the rail alignment, so we felt it was an appropriate place to provide the latest information about the rail system to prospective riders," said HART Executive Director/CEO Dan Grabauskas. "Keeping the public informed is essential as we move through construction and into operations of Oahu's first elevated rail transit system."

The Ala Moana Center satellite city hall had more than 136,000 customers last year, city officials said.
