Biki to add more stops as bike share program expands on Oahu

News

After nine months, Biki is expanding on Oahu.

Since the program launched on June 28, 2017, Bikeshare Hawaii says ridership has reached over 560,000 with requests for more Biki Stops around town.

The company is planning to add roughly 30 to 50 stops this summer to fill gaps in the program’s existing footprint and expand into nearby areas.

“We’ve had over 200 requests from current users as well as people that aren’t using it yet, but are telling us where they want Biki Stops that would make the system something convenient for them and something they could use,” said Justine Espiritu, Bikeshare Hawaii.

Espiritu says the communities that receive the most requests are UH Manoa, Makiki, Kapiolani Park, Kapiolani Community College, and Iwilei.

The public will get a chance to learn more about Biki’s expansion plans. 

Open houses will be held April 10, 6 to 8 p.m. at Makiki District Park, and April 17, 5 to 7 p.m. at Pauahi Recreation Center.

Attendees will be able to review potential sites for new Biki Stop locations, suggest new locations, share input, and ask questions.

Representatives from the Hawaii Bicycling League and the City and County’s Complete Streets Program will have informational tables about safety, cycling laws, and planned infrastructure improvements.
