P-3s AMONG THE TOPICS FOR THIS WEEK'S 
HART BEAT  
 
HART's solicitation of a "Public-Private Partnership"  (P-3) to deliver the remainder of the Honolulu Rail Transit Project was just one of the topics up for discussion on this week's  HART Beat

HART Executive Director and C.E.O. Andrew Robbins also spoke about the Honolulu Rate Commission and the role it plays in setting fares for various public transportation options on O'ahu - TheBus, TheHandi-Van, and eventually, rail.  As always, Robbins also took questions from callers and emailers.


On the second and fourth Monday of each month, HART Beat is a feature of the Mike Buck Show and is dedicated to the Honolulu Rail Transit Project.

You can hear HART Beat on AM 690 and 94.3 FM "The Answer," every second and fourth Monday from 7:00am to 8:00am. 

The latest installment of the "HART Beat" can be heard by  clicking here.

HART: 
COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY 
 
As part of its overall construction and operational plan, the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) follows a Sustainability and Resiliency Policy that establishes "environmental stewardship, sustainability, and resiliency as key factors in the strategies, plans, decisions, and business practices of HART."

HART is also committed to advancing the values of environmental stewardship, sustainable mobility, and resiliency as an organization, employer, and member of the overall community.
 
The Honolulu Rail Transit Project promotes environmental, economic, and social well-being by incorporating sustainability practices throughout its planning, design, construction and operations. HART's practices recognize the unique environmental and cultural qualities of Hawaii, both regionally as well as at the neighborhood level. Our proactive sustainability efforts will highlight and preserve our 'aina for future generations.

The numbers speak for themselves.  Public transportation can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by providing an alternative to driving.  On a national scale, transportation accounts for 28% of greenhouse gas emissions.  Sixty-four percent of these transportation emissions come from cars, SUVs and pickups.

Electric-powered rail technologies, like the one to be used for the Honolulu Rail Transit System, produce about 75% less in greenhouse gas emissions per passenger mile than private automobiles. In addition to providing a clean energy alternative to driving, the Honolulu Rail Transit Project also will help preserve green spaces by facilitating focused development and reduce carbon emissions related to transportation.
