With six weeks until Election Day and the biggest issue in the Honolulu mayoral race is taking a bit more shape through online forums.

Former Gov. Ben Cayetano, who opposes the Honolulu rail project, has been revealing more details of his much-talked-about "bus rapid transit" in Facebook posts on Civil Beat's website. Cayetano is a regular participant in the discussion forum, engaging his opponents and explaining why he thinks BRT is a better choice for Honolulu than the proposed heavy rail project his opponent, Kirk Caldwell, supports.

Caldwell does not post comments to the forum.

Cayetano was in Los Angeles this week to review that city's state-of-the-art traffic light synchronization system that helps buses catch more green lights. He said he would unveil his transportation plan soon after his return at a series of public campaign events.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
