Honolulu’s Bill 10 promotes establishing a pilot program to provide support and regulation to carsharing organizations, including dedicated parking spots for use by carsharing organizations.

To address traffic and parking concerns for Honolulu residents, a new bill would establish a pilot program to provide dedicated parking spots for carsharing organizations, according to a report by Khon 2.

“Bill 10 really promotes carsharing, which is going to get more cars off the road,” Honolulu City Councilman Trevor Ozawa told Kohn 2. “And at the same time, it allows those people that are living in high-density areas to be able to still have an option to park on street when they need to. There are going to be no reserved on-street parking stalls for carsharing companies.”

The bill’s proposed 36-month pilot program would provide carsharing companies with dedicated parking spots in off-street parking facilities for a fee that compensates the city for lost meter revenue and installation and maintenance cost, according to the Honolulu City Council.
