    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.

    $7.50 a day is absurd.
    Typical project with bloated costs.
    Also- timing is almost Five years? To build an airport rental car facility? Really?
