Future Mobility in Hawaii: Meeting the State's Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility

This report investigates the use, safety, and condition of Hawaii's highways, public transit systems, bridges, and roads; and the role of federal funding in Hawaii's future mobility needs and the improvement and maintenance of Hawaii's surface transportation system. The report notes that even though Hawaii received $170 million in stimulus funding - for public transit, highway and bridge improvements - from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, this will not be enough to take care of the state's transportation needs. The current federal surface transportation program, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Equity Act – A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), expires on October 31, 2009. It is important to overhaul this program and boost its funding, to ensure that states will have adequate funds to maintain the condition, safety and use of their highways, bridges and public transit systems. The state of Hawaii depends on funding from this Federal surface transportation program, and it is vital to continue this source of funding.
