FAQs - Environmental Advantages
Are there environmental advantages to rail transit?

Yes. The rail system will eliminate tens of thousands of car trips every day that would otherwise be taken on Oahu's roads. That means less auto pollution, a reduced need for new highways, and less dependence on imported oil. Rail transit will be electrically powered, and with Hawaii moving toward the goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2045, the trains will get greener as the percentage of renewable energy produced increases.
