Park faster with us to help reduce emissions and decrease traffic.

Studies have found that anywhere from 30 to 60 percent of drivers found in heavily trafficked areas such as Honolulu’s downtown area or Waikiki are just circling in their cars, looking for a place to park . These drivers spend an average of 20 minutes looking for spot while their cars are emitting nearly 1 pound of C02 per mile traveled . We here at Parklinq can help to reduce these emissions and traffic congestion by providing you with a service that takes the guesswork out of parking and helps you get to your parking stall quickly.

As a local, Hawaii-based company, Parklinq is committed to not only enhancing our customers’ lives, but also improving the environment. Parklinq’s employees deeply appreciate Hawaii’s abundant natural beauty and a climate that encourages an active and healthy lifestyle. In order to preserve Hawaii’s natural environment for ourselves and future generations, Parklinq believes in environmental stewardship and active participation in sustainable activities. Help us to help the environment by parking with Parklinq.

OUR STORY

img

One day, the founder, Tyler, was late for work in Waikiki and could not find any on-street parking. Out of desperation, he parked his truck in an unoccupied apartment parking stall and left his phone number on the windshield in case the owner of the stall returned. The owner of the parking stall called Tyler a few hours later and asked him to move his truck.

When Tyler returned to the apartment, he recognized the stall owner as one of his coworkers. Instead of moving his truck, Tyler asked his coworker to let him park in his parking spot for the rest of the month for eighty bucks. Tyler knew that his coworker didn’t own a car and that the parking spot was empty. The coworker agreed and rented the spot to Tyler. After renting the parking spot for a month, Tyler was determined to bring a new rental parking solution to Honolulu. The founder knew the struggles of parking in highly-trafficked area like Waikiki and realized that there are people with unused parking space that could use some extra cash, hence the creation of Parklinq.
