HONOLULU — Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) officials contracted with Ernst & Young Infrastructure Advisors LLC to study the potential use of public-private partnerships for the remainder of the 20-mile elevated rail project, the Pacific Business News reports.
HART said it received eight quality proposals in response to its request last month for a P3 consultant. Ernst & Young will conduct a feasibility study, which will include orchestrating an industry day in Honolulu for interested potential participants in a future P3 procurement.
The consultant firm will then provide recommendations to HART and the city as to whether a market of potential interested parties is available specific to the Honolulu rail project. For the full story, click here.
