Are you ready to explore the Oahu Rail System? With the launch of the Skyline rail system, passengers can now travel from Kualaka'i Station in East Kapolei to Halawa Station, near Aloha Stadium. But how will riders access information about schedules, routes, and fares for riding on board a single train car? Passengers will be charged based on their HOLO card. With a single touch on the boarding gate, passengers can enter the station to board the next available train. Passengers will be granted a transfer period of 2.5 hours after the first touch.
These transfers can be used to board a bus or train back and forth at no cost if used within 2.5 hours. Jon Nouchi, deputy director of the city's Department of Transportation Services who is now responsible for operating the system, advised passengers not to lean on or block train doors and to let passengers out before boarding, which can cause “unintended delays” in the system. Honolulu police have been touring various railway scenarios for months, and 20 agents from the department's Specialized Services Division toured the trains inside the railway system's operations services building on Thursday. The city officials will open the doors of the first nine train stations for free travel on June 30.
This means that it will be impossible to accurately count the exact number of passengers showing up to travel in person on the rail line. To make sure that you have all of the information you need before you board your first train car, here is a breakdown of what you need to know about schedules, routes, and fares for riding on board a single train car of the Oahu Rail System:
