Perkins+Will to design stations for final phase of Honolulu rail project

Design firm Perkins+Will was recently selected by the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation (HART) to design eight stations for the fourth and final phase of the Honolulu Rail Transit project.


The elevated rail will span 20 miles and is expected to carry more than 115,000 passengers per weekday, facilitating transit-oriented design to support the expected 200,000 person increase in Honolulu's population by the year 2030.

"Perkins+Will's approach to transit design is focused on enhancing the passenger experience, with accessible and inviting stations," said Director of Transportation Design Jeff Doble. "Our projects stand out because we consciously work to integrate the designs into the fabric of each community."
