For many years, until recently, Walt and Arla Harvey, prominent Hawaii Kai realtors, kept a running list of hundreds of various media news items online on their coastal-hawaii.com website. It has been very useful for researchers on the rail issue to have had access to all this information. They are now giving it up and we will host their collection here at honolulutraffic.com although any updates to it will be sporadic (unless we find a volunteer who will do the work). When this saga is over, which we hope will be soon, this collection will be valuable to those writing on the issue particularly historians.

Walt and Arla , thanks so much for all your efforts.

NOTE: Many of these links broken but knowing the story headline and the date will get you there.  Here's one way: I looked for the "Council poised to sink the boat" story dated 04/14/09.  For the Star Bulletin,  go to http://archives.starbulletin.com   Then click on the year, which leads you to the month and day, and then look for the headline of the story.

Hawaii Transportation Issues 

Transportation can be a key factor in the value of Hawaii real estate, especially on Oahu and Honolulu. The more distant from employment centers and the longer the commute time, the less homes tend to cost. Land tends to be less expensive the further away it is from the urban core. The exception to this are resort properties.  The challenges that municipalities face is providing adequate transportation: adequate, well maintained roads as well as alternative means such as private and public mass transit. The City and County of Honolulu is now committed to the building of a $3.7-$6 billion rail system. This is still controversial, not only for the cost and the small area of Oahu served, but because the experts and even the city officials admit it will not reduce congestion on our roadways. Follow the saga in the articles below.

The other recent controversy was over the Hawaii SuperFerry, the Inter-Island ferry that came and operated successfully and is now gone! Please review the many news articles that chronicle the challenges of this venture.

If you are seeking real estate in Hawaii we can help you with information on commute routes and times. The articles below include news articles relating to local Hawaii transportation activity that may have an impact on housing values.
