Getting to and from the Hawaii Convention Center (HCC) for residents and out-of-state meetings attendees became easier and “greener” with the installation of a self-service Biki Stop on the side of the building fronting Kapiolani Boulevard.

The state’s largest meetings facility, located at the entrance to Waikiki, is one of 100 stations across Oahu 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, convention center officials said.

“This initiative fits in nicely with AEG’s 1EARTH sustainability efforts to run the most efficient and environmentally friendly convention center possible,” said Teri Orton, HCC general manager, in a written release. “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.
