Here's what the Honolulu City Council doesn't want us to have
Here's the Metro station. Still no need to lift my bags. There were escalators everywhere. I paid the fare to a machine, $2.35. Actually I used my credit card because I was too lazy to get my small change out of the hand-carry bag. Yes, this research cost me only 1/10 the cost of a cab from Honolulu Airport.
So let's see... I got to Bethesda Station at 5:47. There's a really, really long escalator to the street, which I took not realizing there was also an elevator. Now, into the hotel, check in, say "hi" to some friends, and I'm relaxing in my room at 6:02.
I just want the City Council to know what they have cheated Honolulu commuters out of. Having the train go from the airport to Waikiki would add to Honolulu's attractiveness as a tourist destination, and of course residents along the way would love it too.
