Keep Hawaii in the plantation era... NO RAIL! We don't need to grow, all we have to do is buy more cars, and build more roads... ignorance is bliss. Somewhere in between generations, life in the islands became about "ME" and not the community as a whole. Nobody likes change but keeping the transit system you presently have will only restrict growth and doom the state's economy. Change is needed, this is your opportunity...

The residents of the west-side need some sort of break RAIL is the alternative 300 plus passengers on the average with @ 6 trains going to & from each destination =@ 1800 cars off the road per rush hour. Not a bad total. Just imagine more road closures WHEN an accident happens along the west coast, yup we need RAIL. Also we need it to come out of EWA BEACH, we face the facts we need some sort relief, and it ain't more roads (may be the back end of Waianae) but to do that we gotta cut through alot of farms and houses, then you get emminent domaine AGAIN! People loosing homes and land; I know, it happened to me loosing 2 acres due to the H3. The greater good; RAIL will only help in many areas; traffic, jobs, and safety.

Assume rail works.

You won't get your first ride for 10 years.

What is the City doing to reduce the congestion right now? Absolutely nothing. That is to force you into thinking rail is necessary.

Don't be so gullible. If your gripe is traffic there are many things that can be done right now to help but the City doesn't do them. So how serious is the City about solving traffic?

They could start by eliminating the free and discount parking for government employees, huh?

Don't be so gullible.

No resounding vote for rail tonight despite the thousands spent by the unions and our own tax dollars. Seems that the rag tag group Stop Rail Now was on to something. There is no major support for this project. A pox on the heads of the politicians who support this.
