More Editorial Support for Rail’s Airport Route

The Honolulu Star-Bulletin today endorsed the shift of the Honolulu rail transit system’s route to connect with Honolulu International Airport.

Citing increased ridership and less land acquisition needed compared to the Salt Lake routing the Council OK’d two years ago, the paper doesn’t mention the “common sense” angle favored by many local residents who say they’ll leave the car at home and ride the train to the airport when traveling off-island.

Final Week for Comments

The comment period on the system’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement ends Friday, February 6. The window was lengthened a whole month to give residents maximum opportunity to have their say on the document.

Our December 4th post has links to the DEIS’s chapters and information on how to submit comments.
