Passenger service from Kualakaʻi Station (East Kapolei) to Hālawa Station (Aloha Stadium) is targeted for late 2020. A second opening with passenger service to the Middle Street Transit Center via Pearl Harbor and Daniel K. Inouye International Airport is targeted to start by the end of 2023. The entire 20-mile system from Kapolei to Ala Moana is expected to be in full revenue service by the end of 2025.
