Honolulu “Smart Parking Meters” – Installations to Begin June 1st

The City and County of Honolulu is piloting 110 new card and coin accepting parking meters around Honolulu Hale to provide more parking payment options for customers. These state-of-the art meters are solar powered, accept payment by phone, and are paired with vehicle detection sensors to gather valuable data about parking occupancy. Meter installation will begin June 1, 2012 and will be located in the following areas: Honolulu Civic Center Garage, S. King St. and Punchbowl Ave. near the state capitol building, and Honolulu Police Department.
