No one person decided the rail system Honolulu is currently embarked on. In 2008, 50.6% of voters decided to allow the construction of a steel on steel rail transit system. There were expert panels, studies, reports, and key City Council decisions, which were shaped by input. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa talked with former Mayor Mufi Hannemann who was spearheading the rail project at the time. It was pegged at 5.2 billion dollars.
