The Shops at Maʻalaea Harbor—home to about a dozen businesses including the Pacific Whale Foundation, the adjacent Maui Ocean Center, and Da Playground nightclub—are launching a new initiative that will enable kama’aina guests to park anywhere in their 600-space parking lot for free.

Starting May 1, “smart parking” technology from Hawaiʻi-based PARKLINQ will be deployed. New signage will display a QR code for visitors—which can be scanned with a smart phone—and a number to text for local residents.

If you scan the QR code, you’ll be prompted to enter your license plate number and length of stay. Then you pay by credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay at a rate of two dollars per hour, or five hours for eight dollars. Cash is not accepted. A text message reminds you 15 minutes before your parking pass expires, allowing you to extend it remotely.

Kama’aina text a number which prompts them to upload a photo of their Hawai’i license or ID and enjoy free parking anywhere in the lot.
