What is HART?

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) is the semi-autonomous public transit authority responsible for the planning, development and construction of the Project, a 20-mile, automated fixed-guideway rail system with 21 stations extending from East Kapolei to Ala Moana Transit Center. The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation is governed by the HART Board of Directors and a Chief Executive Officer. The board consists of ten voting members appointed by the Revised Charter of Honolulu, with four members appointed by the Hawaii State Legislature. They include local officials, business leaders, subject matter specialists and advocates.

HART’s management, organization, and capability to plan, construct, and deliver the Project to the City are of paramount importance. Additionally, the execution of contracts, labor agreements, and other instruments to perform its duties and functions; to acquire by eminent domain, purchase, lease, or otherwise, all real property necessary for the development of the system.

HART plans to deliver a safe, reliable, and functional rail transit system to the City. For full project details, visit “About the Project” section.
