BIKI BLAST: SEPTEMBER 2021

After decommissioning 7 stations back in April due to months of lower ridership and targeted vandalism, we are slowly beginning to bring Biki Stops back! Just last week we installed 2 stations and hope to add the remaining Biki Stops in the next few months. 

Biki Stops will not necessarily be installed in the same sites they were located at previously. Instead, we will continue to review demand trends, community feedback and existing gaps within the system to select high-impact locations. You may show support for a specific neighborhood or location by completing a Biki Stop Request Form
#107 - You can find #107 back in Chinatown at the intersection of Pauahi and Nuuanu, right outside Arts at Marks Garage. This station was removed in 2020 so the City could complete paving work and install curb extensions at this intersection. This is part of the curb extension project piloted in Chinatown in 2017 to improve the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. And, according to Honolulu Complete Streets, these extensions have helped to reduce crashes by nearly 40%! 
#229 - This Biki Stop is located on Makaloa Street at Azure Ala Moana, a new residential tower expected to be completed this month! We are excited to bring another station to an area that sees heavy traffic from riders going to and from the many nearby businesses and residences. Big Mahalo to ProsPac, the developers of the Azure Ala Moana project, for sponsoring Biki Stop #229.
“Multimodal transportation, including bikeshare, is an essential sustainable, environmentally-friendly design element at Azure Ala Moana. We’re proud to partner with Bikeshare Hawaii to provide Biki to residents and community members as a cost-efficient, convenient, healthy transportation option to get around.”

 -Daniel Simonich, ProsPac Project Manager
