Harvard Club of Hawaii Brown Bagger - March 2018


You are invited to join the Harvard Club on Tuesday, March 13th for an update on Honolulu Rail. The speaker will be the HART Executive Director Andrew Robbins. He’ll give a rundown on the current state of affairs and take questions. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what is, to say the least, a hot topic!



Andrew Robbins is a seasoned rail transit executive with substantial experience in public passenger urban rail, rail equipment, infrastructure, construction management, systems integration and airport transit. In a period spanning more than 35 years, he's been involved in numerous transit systems located domestically and internationally, at airports and within urban areas.


As a senior executive with Bombardier Transportation, Mr. Robbins has most recently led efforts in project development, bidding and contract negotiations for many transit projects in the United States including in Denver, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles. He also led similar efforts for urban automated projects in Singapore, Guangzhou and Shanghai, China, the latter as overall project development and negotiation leader for a Bombardier-led joint venture in China. All three projects were the first ever fully driverless transit systems in those cities.


With engineering degrees from Lehigh and the University of Pittsburgh, Andrew has family ties to Hawaii and has previously worked in Honolulu.
