HART's Weekly eBlast


Rail Track in Segment 2 Energized 

Rail Track in Segment 2 Energized

The rail track in Segment 2 from the Hālawa (Aloha Stadium) Station to Kahauiki (Middle Street) Station is now energized. The “third rail,” which powers the trains, carries 750 volts of electricity. Any contact with the third rail will result in immediate death

While the rail stations may look complete, they are still active work zones. Access to secured rail facilities and the guideway is strictly prohibited.

HART is preparing to expand the rail system in Segment 2 with four new stations, connecting Aloha Stadium Station to Middle Street Station. This segment is anticipated to open for passenger service by the end of 2025.


  • Keep out of rail stations under construction and all active work sites.
  • Do not attempt to cut or hop fences to enter secured facilities.
  • The system is equipped with 1,500+ security cameras.
  • The automated trains move in any direction at any time without warning.
  • Keep off the rail track. The third rail is energized 24/7 with 750 volts of electricity. Any contact with the third rail will result in immediate death.
  • Trespassing at rail facilities is strictly prohibited, and violators will be prosecuted (HRS S708-814).



HART urges the public to follow safety precautions when driving near the rail guideway:  

  • Look ahead, not overhead.
  • Do not watch or photograph the trains while driving.
  • Keep your attention on the road.
