HONOLULU – Getting to and from the Hawai‘i Convention Center (HCC) for residents
and out-of-state meetings attendees became easier and “greener” today with the installation of
a self-service Biki Stop on the side of the building fronting Kapi‘olani Boulevard.
The state’s largest meetings facility, located at the entrance to Waikīkī, is one of 100
stations across O‘ahu and will offer 15 Biki bikes for users. Biki is Honolulu’s new bikeshare
program, managed by Bikeshare Hawaii, a not-for-profit 501(c) 3 organization, providing an
alternative method of transportation that is convenient, affordable and environmentally friendly.
“We are thrilled the Hawai‘i Convention Center has its own Biki Stop, as this new
transportation service offers residents and conference-goers a green and clean means to move
about Honolulu and Waikīkī,” said Teri Orton, HCC general manager. “This initiative fits in nicely
with AEG’s 1EARTH sustainability efforts to run the most efficient and environmentally friendly
convention center possible. Biki is a welcome mode of transportation for those seeking healthier
living and wanting to help eliminate congestion from Honolulu’s roadways.”
Interested users can log onto gobiki.org to sign up or purchase any one of the following
passes before heading to a Biki Stop:
• $15 monthly pass that provides unlimited 30-minute rides per month
• $25 monthly pass that provides unlimited 60-minute rides per month
• $20 Free Spirit pass that provides 300-minutes
• $3.50 for a single ride (30 minutes of use)
A free mobile Biki app is also available for Android and Apple mobile device users.
Biki users can sign up for the bikeshare system, purchase and/or reload all passes on the go.
