The City of Honolulu has received bids to finish construction works of the Honolulu Rail Transit Project (HRTP) and run the transit system for 30 years.
The project is being implemented on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis and involves the design, construction and financing of a mostly-elevated railway in Honolulu. The railway will form a 20 mile (32km), 21-station transit system connecting East Kapolei to Ala Moana Center. This mega project has USD 9.2 billion budget.
The final section involves the construction of a 4-mile (6.4 km) long elevated rail line in the city center, 8 stations, Pearl Highlands transit center and 1, 600-stall parking garage. The estimated cost of the construction of this segment is USD 1.4 billion.
The bidders and their proposals are unknown and cannot be disclosed due to state procurement laws. They will be announced when the project is awarded.
The submission of proposals has been delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic. The award of the project is now planned before the end of August.
It was announced earlier that the rail line will open at the end of 2025, which now has been moved to March 2026.
