About Us Temporary


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.

Great opinion editorial by Ramil, Garval, Nakata and Jucutan! It not only addresses equity but looks at the future, my biggest concern! Rail is for the future! If not now, when? When we are all clogged up with cars, more riders who can’t get from point A to B? Our traffic problem is not going away, it will get worse. And, rail is not to replace the bus. It’s an integrated traffic solution, and the rail is part of it!

I’m back home for the summer after a year at school in Washington, D.C. and I really miss riding the Metro. Rail took me everywhere I needed to go… to my internship in the city, to do my shopping and to attend seminars. We need rail in Honolulu too.
