What is the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation?

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) is a semi-autonomous public transit authority responsible for the planning, construction, operation, maintenance, and expansion of the city's fixed guideway system. HART is governed by a 10-member board composed of the state Department of Transportation director; the City Department of Transportation Services director; and six volunteers from the community: three appointed by the Mayor, three by the City Council. The director of the city Department of Planning and Permitting also serves as a non-voting member. The voting members appoint the tenth member to the board.
