Funding for a consolidated car rental facility at HNL has recently passed House Committee approval. The $300 million project will provide shared shuttle buses from baggage claim areas and to passenger check-in areas. It will also provided exits from the airport by alternate routes in an effort to reduce traffic congestion. An interim facility will be constructed at a cost of $43 million, from 12/12 to 5/13. The permanent facility will be constructed from 11/13 to 11/16. The House Bill proposes a $7.50/day surcharge on all vehicle rentals to fund the construction.
