Hart Statement Regarding Federal Funding For Honolulu Rail Transit Project

HART STATEMENT REGARDING FEDERAL FUNDING

FOR HONOLULU RAIL TRANSIT PROJECT

HART executive director and CEO Daniel Grabauskas issued the
following statement regarding the U.S. House of Representatives
Committee on Appropriations’ approval of a transportation funding
bill that includes federal funds for the Honolulu rail transit
project.

“We are pleased to see that Honolulu is included in this early
stage of the appropriations process. It’s important to note that
while the House funding level is not the same as the Senate bill or
the President’s request, all of the New Start transit projects with
full funding grant agreements were fully funded. We are confident
that as we move forward with the Federal Transit Administration
(FTA) on signing a full funding grant agreement later this year,
Sen. Dan Inouye and our entire congressional delegation will work
to increase the final level of funding for Honolulu and keep the
project moving forward so that we can provide Oahu residents with
much-needed relief from what is now the worst traffic congestion in
the country.”
