Biki program continues to grow, 10 more stations added throughout Honolulu
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Bikeshare Hawaii has expanded their Biki program with the addition of 10 more stations.
The new stations were installed and ready for riders Monday as the demand for more Biki stops among users grew.
The new stations can be found in the following areas:
Pohukaina Street near UFC Gym
Ward Village in front of Real Gastropub
Ward Village near the former Sports Authority
Beretania and Punchbowl Streets near Department of Health
Fort Street Mall at King Street
Fort Street Mall at Queen Street
Punchbowl Street near Queen Street
Beretania Street at Isenberg Street
Kalakaua Avenue between Ohua and Paoakalani Avenues
The new stations bring the total number of Biki stops on Oahu to 99.
Since the program began in late June, Bikeshare Hawaii says over 75,000 trips have been taken using the more than 1,000 bikes provided.
"The primary goal of Biki is to provide convenient mobility in urban Honolulu for the vast majority of people who don't bike now. In many situations, Biki provides a cheaper, healthier, friendlier and faster alternative to driving and parking," Bikeshare Hawaii officials said.
The group also says none of the new stations take up public parking spots.
