Frequently Asked Questions - Aloha Stadium
The first phase of the system, from East Kapolei to Aloha Stadium, is undergoing testing that is expected to be completed within the next year. At that time when segment one is fully operational, HART will deliver this segment to the Department of Transportation Services, which will determine the timing for a public opening and all other operational questions.
By 2030, nearly 60 percent of Oahu's population and more than 90 percent of the island's jobs will be located along the 20-mile rail corridor. Rail will connect major residential areas with primary job centers. There will be stops downtown, at three UH system campuses, Aloha Stadium, the Honolulu International Airport and several shopping centers. Rail will offer a convenient way to get to work, school or home. In addition, rail will provide a way to attend special events at Aloha Stadium, catch flights at the airport, or enjoy concerts at the Blaisdell Center, without the hassles of parking and traffic.
