Nearby Lots & On-Street Meters
Ala Moana Beach Park is within a 10-minute walk west of the center and offers free daily parking from 4 AM to 10 PM. The lot tends to get crowded on weekends or during peak hours.
Parking meters in Waikiki charge around $1.50 per hour. However, street parking is hit-and-miss, and regulations vary according to the zone, so we recommend off-street lots. If you find an available street spot, read the posted signs carefully to dodge pricey parking tickets.
Honolulu’s TheBus system allows easy and affordable access to the venue. Bus routes 2, 4, and 13 stop on Kalākaua Avenue, and a cash bus fare is $3. For additional info, maps, and schedules, click here or call (808) 848-5555.
