The HART Public Involvement Team was front and center at this week's Hawai'i Hotel & Restaurant Show at the Hawai'i Convention Center. The event served as the official tradeshow of both the Hawai'i Lodging & Tourism Association and the Hawai'i Restaurant Association.
Thousands attended the two-day event, making their way through HART's educational kiosk to catch the most up-to-date
information on the Honolulu Rail Transit Project. Visitors were treated to renderings of all twenty-one stations across the 20-mile Project, a 3-D model of HART's H
ō'ae'ae (West Loch) Station in Waipahu, a scale model on one of HART's state-of-the-art rail cars, as well as alignment fly-over & informational videos.
HART Senior Advisor for Interim Service Bill Brennan and HOLO Card Project Manager Whitney Birch also teamed up for a break-out info session. Brennan detailed HART's plan to begin limited passenger service across the Ewa-most 10 miles of the Project late next year, while Birch spoke about the soon-to-be released payment system for Oahu public transportation, the HOLO transit smart-card.

REPS FROM JAPAN'S SEIBU RAILWAY RECEIVE
A contingent of contractors, engineers, suppliers, and operators associated with Japan's Seibu Railway were in Hawaii recently to conduct a series of meetings. While in the
islands, the group received an update on the Honolulu Rail Transit Project from HART East Area Construction Manager John Moore.
The group was given a progress report regarding Farrington & Kamehameha Highway Guideway Station construction and was brought up-to-date on HART's plans to roll out limited passenger service on that same section of the alignment, sometime in late 2020.
EAD THE LATEST HART PROGRESS REPORT
Each month, the HART Board of Directors receives a comprehensive report on the current status of the rail project. The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation believes it is essential to be transparent and keep the public up-to-date on the project. Therefore, each monthly report is posted for public review.
Practice going to a safe shelter for high winds, such as a FEMA safe room or ICC 500 (Federal safety standard for) storm shelter(s). The next best protection is a small, interior, windowless room in a sturdy building on the lowest level that is not subject to flooding.
