Rail transit car replica on display at Kapolei Hale

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation unveiled a replica of the train car for Honolulu’s rail transit system at Kapolei Hale Thursday. The model is a life-sized preview of what the actual cars will look and feel like.

“Kapolei is the first community along the 20-mile rail alignment, so we felt it was appropriate to have the train model here at Kapolei Hale for the residents to view and experience,” said HART Executive Director and CEO Dan Grabauskas.

HART says Honolulu’s rail system will feature a fleet of 80 rail cars. Each air-conditioned four-car train will have seating for nearly 200 passengers, free Wi-Fi and room for wheelchairs, bicycles, surfboards and luggage.

The train vehicle replica will be available for public viewing Saturday and Sunday, February 15 and 16, in the Kapolei Hale courtyard at 1000 Uluohia St. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will also be on exhibit at Kapolei Hale through the end of April.

To arrange a group or class tour of the train car model, e-mail HART at info@HonoluluTransit.org or call our project hotline at 566-2299.
