A PARTICULAR POINT OF VIEW

A CHEAP TRANSIT SOLUTION

If a transit line between Aala Park and Waikiki is needed, then start it with express articulated buses which have level boarding without the need of raised platform above the sidewalk. These buses can travel in mixed traffic lanes in 25 minutes instead of 23.1 minutes by BRT in exclusive lane, according to the FEIS. The City should not be completely dependent on public transportation, especially when it is faced with a union strike or another type of an emergency.

In the coming years, each Oahu taxpayer will be paying more taxes to the Federal, State and City governments as they increase their expenditures. We must economize our public services in order to lessen the burden of governments on us. Recognizing that we have entered into uncertain economic times and must be careful with the allocation of our financial resources
