In 2007 Tokens & Icons began the Collector's Transit Token Series to celebrate the transit histories of America's mid-sized cities. Many of the trollies and rail systems for which these tokens were once minted are now defunct. Once currency, these tokens are rare and hard-to-find mementos and, therefore, the cuff links in this collection are often subject to availabilty.
Periodic cleaning with a silver cloth is recommended.
Honolulu Rapid Transit
The Honolulu Rapid Transit (HRT) was founded in 1898 on the same day that Hawaii was annexed by the US. In 1925, the HRT began operating buses and, in 1951, it minted "Hula" bus tokens which were not put into circulation. In 1971, the transit system was renamed "TheBus." It is the only organization twice recognized as America's Best Transit System by the American Public Transportation Association.
