City to restrict parking, provide shuttle in Lanikai over holiday weekend


    Parked cars and beachgoers were seen along Kaelepulu Drive near Lanikai in Dec. 2014. The city will prohibit parking on the shoulders of public roads and streets in Lanikai for certain hours, even for area residents, over the holiday weekend.

Special bus shuttle service will be available during the Presidents’ Day weekend in Lanikai where the city will prohibit parking on the shoulders of public roads and streets, even for area residents.

Bus route 70 (Lanikai-Maunawilli) will provide additional service between Kailua Town and Lanikai from approximately 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Presidents’ Day (Monday).

Lanikai will be designated as a “special enforcement district,” meaning absolutely no parking will be permitted on the shoulders of public roads and streets in Lanikai between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Cars will be ticketed and towed away.

  • Most tourist want a direct non stop flight. Do the same with the bus service to Lanikai. Have the bus from Honolulu take the tourist straight to the beach, and eliminate the route, 70 shuttle bus route that makes the tourist wait for over an hour. But the union will fight this because every senior bus operator wants to cushy, not busy routes in the valley.

  • See how this darn overpopulation ruins our lives and takes away one freedom after another? And there is the misled public, still thinking immigration is not ruining our lifestyles!

  • Don’t those Lanikai beachfront homes have huge yards? Have some kids and grandkids make weekly allowances opening parking lots. Sell lemonades, too. Teaches kids to think and learn the value and culture of money at an early age. I still think there should be a large parking area away from Lanikai and let people pay for rides on Thai motor scooter taxis, buses, Filipino jeepneys, tricycles, Lyft, Uber, baht buses, and colorful Hawaiian vehicles decorated with palm leaves for roofs and Hawaiian music. Forget union-run city buses. Let free enterprise rein.

  • Oh, isn’t that special? So the City is providing more bus service to Lanikai as their hallowed solution. They ban parking, but encourage MORE people to access the place by shuttle bus. Let’s ALL descend on Lanikai beach, jamming the shuttle buses and beaches, where remember, there are no public RESTROOMS! I’m sure the residents are overjoyed that the City is encouraging more beachgoers into the neighborhood to “jam the sand”.

  • Just restrict parking EVERYDAY. They keep saying safety is the main issue, then, safety should be observed EVERYDAY, not only on weekends and holidays. Next holiday, we’ll see similar articles.
