( — The Department of Transportation (DOT) announced  that $1.55 billion in new federal tax dollars will be allocated for the  first-ever Hawaiian Transit Rail system on the island of Oahu, which  will serve downtown Honolulu, at a total federal and state cost of $5.1  billion.

The train circuit will be 20 miles long, with 21 stops on an island that is 30 miles wide.

The transit system will span from the lesser populated island area of  Kapolei, and will end at Ala Moana Center Station, approximately 1-3  miles from the University of Hawaii and Punahou School, the high school  once attended by President Obama.
