Zoo Parking Fee Collections Up

New Pay Stations Monitor License Plates
In the two months since the city started using solar-paneled pay stations at the Honolulu Zoo's parking lot, it has seen an increase in parking fees, officials said.

Ten blue solar-paneled pay stations replaced the old parking meters on July 15. The city took in $22,500 for the remainder of that month and $49,000 in August, city officials said. That is a 10 percent increase in parking fees for the city, acting Mayor Kirk Caldwell said.

"It is out performing our expectation. We get a minimum of $45,000. The rest goes to the vendor to pay for the program," Caldwell said.

The city charges $1 for parking at the zoo. About 60 percent of those who park there are charging their parking fees, 40 percent are using coins, city officials said.

The pay stations allow people to add time to the pay station using their cell phones.

Parking lot users must enter their license plate number while paying at the pay stations. City attorneys and police are working out details on how to cite those who do not pay their parking fees.
