Traffic And Mass Transit In Paradise?

O'ahu residents support a new mass transit system -- and are willing to increase taxes to get it.

"Three times in the last 30 years, Honolulu has tried to come up with a new mass transit system. Three times, it has failed.

...Seven out of 10 people reached ... said a rail rapid transit line should be constructed as a long-term solution to the island's traffic problem. Of those, almost eight in 10 — which translates to 55 percent of all survey respondents — said they would support a tax increase if it were the only way to build the rail system."
