There are a limited number of metered parking stalls in the underground parking garage (accessible via Miller Street off of Punchbowl Street). The meters take quarters and there is a change machine. Additional metered parking may be found on the grounds of Iolani Palace (accessible via King St.), the Department of Health building on Punchbowl Street, and adjacent streets. There are also numerous public parking lots in the downtown area.

There are convenient bike racks located in the Capitol’s underground parking garage, as well as on the ewa makai corner of the grounds (the Iolani Palace and Richards St. corner).

The Bus also has a number of routes that are convenient to the Capitol.
