Saving Money with Biki


Honolulu is a paradise for both residents and tourists alike. However, enjoying this tropical haven can sometimes come with a hefty price tag. Fortunately, there's a sustainable and cost-effective solution right at your fingertips – Biki!  Let's explore how embracing bikeshare in Honolulu can not only reduce your carbon footprint but also contribute to significant savings in your budget.

Avoiding Gas Costs:

It's no secret that the price for a gallon of gas in Hawaii far exceeds the national average. As of November 2023, a regular gallon will cost you about $4.60. - a whopping 28% higher than the national average of $3.20/gallon. Fueling up a vehicle can be a significant drain on your budget. Bikeshare eliminates this expense altogether, offering a greener and more sustainable alternative to traditional modes of transportation.

No Parking Hassles or Fees:

Honolulu, like many cities, can be challenging when it comes to finding parking, and the associated fees can quickly add up. According to Parkopedia, average parking rates in the urban core are $4.50/hour and $135 per month. Hotels in Waikiki generally charge between $30-50 per night, and some residential buildings can cost upwards of $300/month. By opting for bikeshare, you eliminate the need to search for parking spots, pay for meters, or deal with parking tickets. Simply pick up a bike from one of the 133 convenient stations scattered across the city and drop it off when you reach your destination.

Affordable memberships

One of the most compelling reasons to choose bikeshare in Honolulu is its affordability. Compared to traditional transportation options like renting a car or taking uber/taxis, Biki memberships are incredibly cost-effective. In fact, 69% of members report having saved money because of Biki (2022 Member Survey).
