The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation is looking for the public’s input on their rail stations.

On Tuesday, they unveiled a model of the planned West Loch rail station.

The station’s design was modified after input from the community. The public asked for a more open and smaller station that keeps in context with the community.

With only four stations with park and rides, HART addressed concerns over parking.

“There’s a nexus at each one of our stations with the bus. It’s going to be absolutely integral with the design and to make sure that both bus and Handi-Van have direct connectivity to the stations,” HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas said.

The next public meeting is set for June 25 at 6:30 p.m. at Waipahu Intermediate School.

The public can give input on the West Loch, Waipahu Transit Center, and Leeward Community College stations.
