SURE, THE WEATHER SUCKS, BUT THE TRANSPORTATION COULD BE COOL:

Hawaii Elevated Train Project Ready to Get Off the Ground (AMIR KHAN, January 4, 2012, IB Times)

Hawaii is slated to begin construction on an elevated train in Honolulu this spring, resolving a 40-year battle to build the mass transit system. The train, which would stretch from Honolulu to Waikiki, a span of 20 miles, would be 40 feet in the air and travel across a variety of areas, from farmland to commercial districts to beaches.

The elevated train will be suspended 40 feet in the air and have a 30-foot wide span with 21 stations. It is designed to alleviate some of the congestion on the roads from an increase of commuters and tourists, while encouraging new growth.
