Mayor Carlisle: $55 Million for Rail is Great News for Honolulu

(Fri., June 24, 2011)--Mayor Peter Carlisle today issued the following statement regarding the Federal Transit Administration's decision to award Honolulu the full $55 million that President Obama had requested.

"This is excellent news and a testament to the strength of Honolulu's rail project. The fact that, in a climate of cutbacks, Honolulu's project was able to get the full $55 million speaks volumes about the federal support for this project. This is a major achievement and positions us well for future funding requests-and we are grateful to Hawaii's Congressional delegation for their support.

"These federal funds move us closer to achieving our goal of providing a transportation alternative to our congested roads and highways. This will also allow us to plan for a better future and enhance the quality of life for our residents for decades to come. This is great news for Honolulu."
