Honolulu Light Rail to Open in June

The long-await­ed light line is set to open in the week of June, mark­ing the ’s first train ser­vice, report Cather­ine Cruz and Sophia McCul­lough for Hawaii Pub­lic Radio. “ 22,000 per­mit­ted dwelling units on the way in Cen­tral and West Oʻahu, devel­op­ment is not going to stop, [direc­tor of the Hon­olu­lu of Trans­porta­tion Ser­vices Roger Mor­ton] said. That means stress on Oʻahu’s trans­porta­tion infra­struc­ture.”

The Sky­line light rail sys­tem has been in devel­op­ment since 1968, but encoun­tered a series of set­backs. Now, the train will pro­vide a new tran­sit option for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors in the grow­ing city. Trains will run every 10 between 5am and 7pm on week­days, with ser­vice at 8am on week­ends.
