US News & World Report recently recognized Honolulu as one of the 10 best cities for public transportation due to the city’s bus system and proposed 20-mile rail transit system (see “The 10 Best Cities for Public Transportation,” http://bit.ly/hdxTxC).
In the fall of 2008, Saint Consulting played an integral role in securing the approval for Honolulu’s $5.5 billion rail transit system which will connect the city with western Oahu (see The Saint Report, May 6 2009 “The importance of GOTV for rail transit initiatives,” http://bit.ly/hGluUa). This project, widely heralded for its economic and environmental benefits, is now scheduled to break ground on February 22, 2011.
