The 5-0 State's capital is known for its beaches, but more notorously for its traffic. Most of the state's population lives in the Honolulu area which is long and narrow. This leads to a lot of traffic congestion. At one time Honolulu had a streetcar system, and a railroad, but long since gone, leaving city buses to move people

However, that will change over the next few years. In 2023, Honolulu opened phase one of the Skyline Train (was originally called HART). This is an automated and elevated light metro. Currently it serves the area's western suburbs and ends at Aloha Stadium. Phase 2 will extend the line to the airport and to the fringe of downtown. Futher phases will bring it into downtown. The system is years behind schedule and millions overbudget. But after it is fully open, I think everyone will think it was money well spend for a high quality metro system that it is..
