About Us


MOVE OAHU FORWARD is a non-partisan coalition of Hawaii business and community leaders whose mission is to support initiatives that improve mobility and quality of life in ways that also strengthen the economy and manage future growth while protecting the island’s unique environment and way of life. We believe that Honolulu’s rail transit project accomplishes that.
