HOW DO I GET A STATION IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD?

 

We're continually reviewing suggestions for new station locations. If you've got an idea for a new Biki Stop, please complete the form with as much detail as possible.

A few things to keep in mind: A typical Biki Stop is at minimum 40 feet long. Bikeshare works best where there is high density, mixed use development. Stations should be located no further than 1/2 mile apart from each other, preferably closer.

Additional considerations:

· ADA passing laws require 4 ft clearance on sidewalks. Biki Stops allow 5.5 ft
· Typically, 10 ft clearance is required between Biki Stops and crosswalks, fire hydrants, drains, utility access, driveways, and intersections

When this information is received and processed, we may contact you with notes from our siting team and a License Agreement template for your review (if applicable and if contact information was provided)

The Annual Waikīkī Ho‘olaule‘a is Hawai‘i’s largest block party, featuring food, fun and entertainment along Kalakaua Avenue (from Seaside to Ohua). There will be performances by the various genres of Hawaiian music and hula hālau (hula schools). Hawaiian crafts and flower leis and many varieties of island cuisine will be featured throughout the event.

 

This popular community event attracts thousands of participants who typically arrive by bus, foot, car and uber/taxi. But now that bikeshare’s in town, residents and visitors have an alternative way to get to and from the Ho’olaule’a that is inexpensive, convenient and fun! Biki Stop 321 on Kalakaua and Seaside is located at the very start of Hoolaulea, so ride on down to this year’s event and avoid parking, traffic and other problems.

 

 

Don’t worry about arriving to a full station this Saturday evening. We’ll have staff available at Biki Stop 321 on Kalakaua & Seaside from 6:30pm-10:30pm to help dock your bike and accommodate the influx of riders. Check out our biki map on gobiki.org or download our mobile app to see the locations and status of our other biki stops.

 

 

Don’t have a biki pass? Sign up for a membership at the event and we’ll activate a biki card so you can unlock a bike  for your trip home. The first 20 people to sign up will also get a FREE biki bag! Since everyone uses biki in their own way, we offer 4 different price plans to choose from:

 

 

Don’t want to sign up for a plan? Purchase a $3.50 single ride (up to 30-minutes) from the kiosk or the biki mobile app.

Bikeshare is a great way for not only seasoned cyclists to experience Honolulu by bicycle, but also helps get people back on bikes who haven’t thought about bicycling in a while. There are many that haven’t ridden since childhood, and Biki gives them the opportunity to bring back the feeling of youth, freedom, and enjoyment of wind in their hair. (more…)

After launching on June 28th we decided to hold a video competition to teach Honolulu #HowtoBiki! Riders gave biki a try and documented their rides and experiences for the chance to win biki swag and their choice of a Free Spirit Pass or a month of unlimited biki rides.

 


 

 

1. Starlet Shay submitted one of the first #HowtoBiki videos. She demonstrates how to use the mobile app, the biki stop kiosk, how to removeand return a bike and how to have a blast on biki! Not only is this how-to video thorough and accurate, it’s also bilingual!

 

 

 

 

 

2. The Others BC showed us #WheretoBiki during their night ride across urban Honolulu. They biki’ed to the bar for food and drinks and showed us that biking at night isn’t so bad when you have solar powered blinking biki lights to lead the way!

 

 

 

 

3. Odeelo and friends created this video after giving biki a try on our very first day of operation. They were the inspiration behind this competition and taught us that the best way to learn #HowtoBiki is from other biki riders!

 

 

Visit our youtube channel to watch other #HowtoBiki video submissions!

Have you given biki a try? Send your biki blogs, videos, photos or testimonials to info@bikesharehawaii.org. You may get featured on our social media pages and might even win some biki swag! Stay tuned for more competitions and promotions. Happy riding!

 

So happy to see people on biki every day, every where I go. They are so happy and joyful! It’s a great feeling to be surrounded by the positivity.
