Persons with disability parking permits must pay at city attendant parking lots beginning January 1

News Release from City and County of Honolulu November 21, 2014

Honolulu – The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Transportation Services announced today that effective January 1, 2015, persons with disability parking permits will be charged the standard parking rate at city parking lots that are staffed by an attendant.

This action was mandated by Ordinance 14-25, which was adopted by the Honolulu City Council on July 23, 2014, and makes the city’s policy consistent with state lots staffed by an attendant.

The ordinance repeals the free parking provision for city parking lots with an attendant because the attendant can assist disabled persons making payments and there are no accessibility issues with meters.  Parking spaces with only meter payments and no attendant will remain free for 2½ hours or the maximum amount of time of the meter, whichever is longer.

A public hearing about the changes in parking policies and privileges effected by Ordinance 14-25 was held on Wednesday, October 29, 2014.  For additional information, the public may contact the Department of Transportation Services at 768-8357.
