Update on Transit

The City Council has decided to reconsider the proposed $3.7 billion steel wheels on steel rails train system. Concerns about the noise level are a big issue for communities. The City Council wants to reconsider the much quieter magnetic levitation train system. The next vote on which train system to move forward with will most likely happen in early April. However, no date has been set yet. Mayor Hannemann still hopes to break ground for the project in 2009 and have the first segment between East Kapolei and Waipahu running by 2012.
