Smart parking at HPU
by Vanessa Katz, A&E editor

Parking in downtown Honolulu can be stressful and expensive. Because HPU does not offer student parking, students are forced to find parking independently.

Parking options include meters, garages, and the Hawai‘i Loa campus. Public meters are located along side streets; however, these meters are scarce and can be difficult to find, and most metered parking has a one-hour limit.

Metered public parking offers four-hour parking limits. These stalls tend to fill up fast during the midday hours, so it is wise to park early. Meters in downtown Honolulu charge 25 cents for each fifteen minute time period. Meters are a good option for students attending one class or having only to stay on campus for a short period of time.

Parking fees in downtown Honolulu ranked third highest in a June survey of parking garage costs in 50 major North American cities. Unlucky Honolulu drivers, on the average, pay a regular daily rate of over $30 and a monthly rate of $155. A report by commercial real estate firm, Colliers International, ranked Honolulu the 19th priciest for unreserved monthly parking.

Private parking garages offer hourly, early bird, and monthly parking rates. Some garages offer special rates to HPU students (see the list, at right). Though expensive, most garages have security guards, which offer protection to your vehicle. Some garages are covered while others are open. Call individual facilities for additional information.

HPU students can park at the Hawai‘i Loa campus and catch the 15-minute HPU shuttle to downtown. Parking for the entire fall 2002 semester is $130, and daily parking is a $3 flat rate.
