HONOLULU — West Hawaii Today reports that Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) officials have been addressing security concerns related to Honolulu’s planned rail line, but are still undecided on whether to have security officers on the driverless trains.

Each of the train’s four cars will be equipped with surveillance cameras and staffers will be able to monitor the train at a control center in Waipahu. But a proposal regarding transit police has not yet been brought forward.

A transit security force could include Honolulu officers, sheriff’s deputies or private security guards. The HART board will have the final say in deciding security plans for the rail. For the full story, click here.
