Dumping the rail doesn't do anything for the city budget unless the legislature changes the law and allows the the city to spend the money on something else. If they don't build the rail, I want that money back.

Instead of raising parking fees 500% the City should find ways to make collecting parking fees more efficient. First, eliminate all free parking on City streets. Sell reasonably priced monthly parking stickers to residents who use park on City streets regularly. A established lots like Honolulu Zoo, install pull ticket machines that allow people to use credit cards that cheaper and more easily maintained than meters. By becoming more efficient more revenue would be generated from a much smaller increase in the hourly rate.

Counterproductive, does he want people to get out there and spend money to jump start the economy or stay home cause it is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE to go out. Plus got to save money for all the other things he's going to raise!

He really is a BULLY, Everybody got to do what he says! We should plan a petition...GET HIM OUT.

I always thought that $0.25 was always too cheap. Nothing wrong with $1.25 hr...there are plenty of free spots to park around Kapiolani park. Or perhaps take public transportation to and from Waikiki. I ride the bus to and from the northshore to downtown mon-fri for a year now. $40/mo is so much better than the wear and tear on my car,not to mention the amount of gas that I have saved over the year. The bus is really not a bad option,wish the rail was northshore instead of leeward.

25 cents for parking is nothing.$1.50 sounds about right. If you like surf for 4 hours, you should pay $6.00. That's dirt cheap for surf. Lucky the city even provides parking at all. Why should they? The city doesn't have to give you nothing.
We even more lucky the city is building us a train so we can bring our surf boards into waikiki without driving our cars. Train is only going cost $1.00 one way so for $2.00 you can surf all day.
You guys just grumble all the time. Money is only money. Put value on other things in life like that you are a live.
Agreed...except for the train. You wish $1.00/way. And do you honestly think they are going to allow surfboards on the train (which by the way isn't going to be stopping at the beach any time soon, if even)?
