Bikeshare Hawaii was granted $2 million in 2015 with the purpose of helping to launch the initial phase of bikeshare in urban Honolulu. These funds are used for reimbursement of operating expenses and cannot be used for equipment. Along with donations, these funds have supported the organization’s small start up team, legal and accounting fees, market research, brand development, outreach, and site identification and planning for 100 sites. These funds are expected to be fully utilized by mid-2018. The City allows Bikeshare Hawaii to place Biki stations on the public right of way, with requirements stated in a formal agreement.
