The team had a quick safety brief before walking up the many stairs or taking the elevator to the platform to wait for the train.

Something to note is that there are water fountains at the bottom of the platforms.

Once on the platform, riders can view electronic and permanent signs of what stop they currently are at.

There is also a sign that shows all the available stops along the rail.

Automatic doors will open when the train is stopped, protecting people from touching the moving automobile.

Once in the cart of the train, the train then proceeded to move on the tracks. Many spoke to how smooth it felt and fast it went.

Spaces to store luggage and outlets to charge phones were observed as a positive by passengers.

While on Skyline, passengers can see views of the USS Arizona, USS Missouri, Aloha Stadium, Rail Operations Center, Aloun Farms, the Waikiki Cityline and Diamond Head.
