20190415 na inoa hawaiian station names

Nā INOA

The station names reflect forgotten place names, historic events, and significant sites in Hawaiian culture. Pursuant to Honolulu City Council Resolution 09-158, an expert working group reviewed community knowledge, ethnographic research, and oral accounts to develop culturally authentic and accurate station names. These station names will perpetuate the traditions, culture, and history of Hawai‘i and help knit the rail system into the fabric of O‘ahu.

The proposed Hawaiian names of the twelve rail stations on the Kona end of the rail system as recommended by its Hawaiian Station Naming Working Group for the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) is as follows:

After 30 days, the working group will meet to consider the public comments before finalizing the names and presenting them to the HART Board of Directors for review and adoption.
