Consider Donating to Bikeshare Hawaii this #GivingTuesday!
Launched in 2012, #GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that harnesses the power of social media to make positive change in communities around the world. It brings together organizations, nonprofits, businesses, groups and individuals to encourage random acts of kindness and kick-off the season of giving.
Bikeshare Hawaii was established in January 2014 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization with the mission to launch and manage the Biki bikeshare program in Honolulu. After the successful launch of 1000 bikes at 100 bikeshare stations in June 2017, Bikeshare Hawaii benefits Hawaii residents and visitors by providing a low-cost, convenient, zero emissions transportation option that is healthy for the community and the environment.
The Biki program is very much a community effort and Bikeshare Hawaii relies on support from organizations, businesses and individuals that share our vision: to provide the public with high quality, convenient and affordable bikeshare services that strengthen our public transportation system and connect people to more places where they live, work and play throughout Hawaii nei. We truly appreciate everyone’s support in making this public-private-nonprofit partnership succeed. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all donations are tax deductible. Please visit our website to learn more about the history and background of Hawaii’s bikeshare program.
