KAHULUI, HAWAII (AP) — Hawaii airport has opened a $340 million facility for car rental companies.

The Maui News reported Wednesday that the Kahului Airport Consolidated Rent-A-Car facility is the largest single public works project on Maui.

Officials say the facility that opened Wednesday houses all major rental car companies in one spot and connects passengers with the airport via electric tram.

Officials say the project took three years to complete, was environmentally friendly, and created hundreds of local jobs.

Gov. David Ige visited the site Tuesday and says the project was “funded with no taxpayer dollars involved.”

The funding came from a state facility charge, a daily $4.50 payment by rental car customers.

The Democratic governor says a similar facility is scheduled for 2021 completion at Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.
