|About the Division
The Department of Transportation, Harbors Division (DOT—Harbors) is responsible for the statewide system of commercial harbors, which consists of ten harbors on six islands. The system plays a vital role in Hawai‘i’s economy, as the harbors serve as the primary means for goods to enter and exit the State of Hawai‘i. Hawai‘i imports approximately 80 percent of what it consumes, the majority of which enters the State through the commercial harbors system. DOT—Harbors operations are self-sustaining. The Department of Transportation is authorized to impose and collects rates and charges for use of the harbors system and its properties to generate revenues to fund operating expenses. Capital improvements are funded by DOT—Harbors’ revenues and the issuance of harbor system revenue bonds.
