Biki adds dozens of stops around Oahu

News

Dozens of new Biki stops have popped up around town.

Bikeshare Hawaii recently added 33 new stops with more than 600 docking points in Iwilei, Makiki, Kapiolani Community College, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

“Our customer base has grown exponentially, and we have expanded from original thousand bicycles to just under 1,300 bicycles,” said Todd Boulanger, Bikeshare Hawaii executive director.

Boulanger says stations were added to new neighborhoods in response to frequent requests from the community, and to increase station density where Biki already exists. Funding was provided by the federal Transportation Alternative Program.
