Our patent-pending multi-tiered rate system represents a pioneering approach in its field. With no additional hardware or machines, apart from the driver's smartphone, our advanced system distinguishes between out-of-state visitors and Hawaii residents and offers corresponding rates.*
By simply presenting their driver's license in front of their phone camera, Hawaii residents can effortlessly obtain preferential rates or free parking for a specified duration, while non-resident visitors are charged the standard rate.
*Presently, the Rates for Residents™ program is available at two Hawaii-based locations, including zone 302 on the Big Island and zone 22 on Maui.
To register, you need a valid Hawaii driver’s license. Although registration is a one-time process, activating a new session during each visit is mandatory.
Once you have registered with Rates for Residents™ at any location, the system will recognize the associated phone number at all other PARKLINQ® locations throughout the state.
To start a new parking session, text the parking lot's zone number to 42222, confirm the license plate, and the system will automatically begin a free session, recognizing the registered phone number.
To simplify the parking process for Hawaii residents, Rates for Residents™ uses a verification system that only requires residents to show their driver's license or ID card. We extract the necessary information to make the process hassle-free for our customers.
To ensure accuracy, we cross-check the ID information with a database of Hawaii zip codes and addresses.
Moreover, in restricted access lots where increased security is necessary, we employ an additional precaution to verify that the person holding the ID is the same person in the photo ID. This is done by using their phone camera to take a biometric selfie, which guarantees the security and reliability of our parking program, particularly in places like government buildings or restricted access lots.
