Local News

The Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation is borrowing yet another $20 million to pay bills for the city’s rail project.

Interim executive director Krishniah Murthy submitted a notice to the Honolulu City Council last week.

That puts the total amount drawn so far in short-term municipal bonds, or tax-exempt commercial paper (TECP), at $110 million.

HART has already paid back $50 million of that.

The authority is authorized to draw up to $350 million of the city’s credit line.
