Bikeshare Hawaii announced that the nonprofit is adding another 10 stations to increase access to its Biki bikeshare program.  They have been installed as of Monday, August 14, 2017, so please be aware.  Read more from the Pacific Business Journal, below.

The new stops, which will be located between Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, will bring the total number of Biki stops from Chinatown to Diamond Head to 99, while the number of available bikes increases to 1,000.

"Biki users have requested Biki Stops in areas where there are gaps, and these new locations will help satisfy those requests," Bikeshare Hawaii said in a statement. "None of the new locations take parking spots."

More than 75,000 Biki trips have been recorded since the launch of the bikeshare program in late June. Bikeshare Hawaii says the program records between 1,800 and 2,100 trips per day.

Kakaako/Ala Moana Area:
·Pohukaina Street near UFC Gym

Bikeshare Hawaii Biki stop coming to Kolowalu Park

Project Area

This article originally appeared in the July 2017 edition of the Hokua Resident Newsletter, Ahailono. Written content is attributed to Hokua staff.

Within the next two weeks, Bike Share Hawaii with the approval of the HCDA will install a 23 dock bike rack at the makai corner of Kolowalu Park, at the corner of Queen’s Lane and the Hokua garage entrance (as depicted on the right). The proposal was approved by the HCDA Board at its June 7, 2017 regular meeting and grants Bike Share Hawaii a right of entry to use this location for the installation, operation and maintenance of a bike share pro- gram for a term of 5-years. Landscaping will be modified and surface improvements made before the rack is installed. Manage- ment has been advised that the rack will initially be stocked with 14 bikes but inventory will rotate and fluctuate based on actual usage. All residents should be aware of the additional bicycle traffic in this area and be alert when entering and exiting the garage entrance driveway.

Bike Share Hawaii is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that manages a bike sharing system in the State of Hawaii. The initiative is supported by the Department of Transportation, Department of Health, City and County of Honolulu, and numerous public and private organizations. Currently bike racks have been installed throughout the downtown, Kaka’ako, and Waikiki areas (as noted on the map to the right) with the intent that residents and visitors will use the bikes as an alternative mode of transportation. Bicycles are rented for short periods and may be returned to any rack. A credit card or Biki Pass is necessary to rent bicycles.
