Honolulu Rail: 2005-2013 Slideshow

The slide show presentation titled Fighting ● Boondoggles ● Honolulu ● Rail ● Transit was presented at the 2013 American Dream conference in Washington, D.C. in mid-October 2013.  It provides a brief summary of:
  • Honolulu's history of billion dollar transit plans
  • Why is Honolulu Rail a boondoggle?
  • What was done to stop this train?
Honolulu's $5.2 Billion rail project  is a testament of the power of government and special interests to get their way.  As the Honolulu Civil Beat's multiple polls over the years have revealed, this project never enjoyed a public approval of over 35%.
