Aloha, Kaimuki
It's official - you can now Biki to Kaimuki! Today, we're installing three Biki Stops along Waialae Avenue, opening up our system to Kaimuki residents and businesses. 
Biki Stop #550
This installation project is intended to increase access to the Kaimuki area and relieve the parking shortages expected to result from the upcoming closure of Kaimuki Municipal Parking Lot #2. Since Biki's system expansion in December 2018, Kaimuki has been the top requested location, and we are thrilled to finally meet this demand. Mahalo for your patience!

We worked hard to find suitable locations that would not take up parking stalls. All stations are located on either wide sidewalks or no-parking zones. 
WHERE ARE THE BIKI STOPS?

Kaimuki Biki Stop #551
You can find Biki Stop #551 on 12th Avenue across the street from Coffee Talk.
IS IT SAFE TO RIDE IN KAIMUKI?
The new Kaimuki stations are about one mile from our closest Kapahulu Biki Stop (#507 across from Leonard's Bakery). All routes to Kaimuki involve riding on the roadway with traffic. If you ever feel uncomfortable, get off your Biki and walk it to the nearest station.

Kaimuki to Kapahulu
There are sharrow markings on the mauka side of Waialae Avenue. Sharrows notify drivers that they should expect bicycles on that street, and indicate to bicyclists that is safe to ride in the center of the street rather than on the sidewalk or in the door zone. You'll be riding downhill, so control your speed by keeping your hands on the brakes. Google Maps View.

Kapahulu to Kaimuki
There is a designated bike lane on the makai side of Waialae Avenue. Be cautious of open doors when riding by parked cars. And, keep in mind that vehicles turning right at intersections will need to cross over the bike lane. You'll also be going uphill, so you may need to switch gears and can expect to get your heart rate up a little! Google Maps View.

MORE UPDATES: BIKI STOP REMOVALS
To fulfill this demand, we relocated three existing Biki Stops that had consistent low-use and were in close proximity to other stations. The following Biki Stops have been removed: We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and encourage you to view our system map to find an alternative Biki Stop.

MORE BIKI NEWS
Pensacola
PENSACOLA IS COMPLETE!

The Pensacola Protected Bike Lane is officially open! The two-way lane spans from Wilder Avenue to Kapiolani Boulevard on the Diamond Head side of Pensacola. This project serves as a much needed mauka to makai connection and intersects with the popular protected lane on King Street.
 
WARD AVE BIKE LANES

And the good news keeps on rolling... get ready for even more bike lanes! Two protected lanes - one in each direction - are now being constructed on Ward Avenue from King Street to Ala Moana Boulevard. Check out the street plan and stay tuned for updates. 
Finance Factors
FINANCE FACTORS

In early September we installed a station at Finance Factors (1164 Bishop Street). The Biki Stop was relocated from Pauahi & Nuuanu (The ARTS at Marks Garage) due to paving in Chinatown. Again, we truly appreciate your patience as we shuffle stations around to accommodate city projects.

“Before COVID-19, I used Biki to get to SALT at Our Kaka‘ako for fitness classes at Orangetheory Fitness, grocery shop at Whole Foods Market, or meet up with friends for a bite to eat. Now during quarantine life, I use Biki as a form of exercise.

I hear a lot of my friends say it’s been years since they’ve been on a bike, so I tell them to give Biki a try and they always seem to end up having fun.”
