Biki offers an affordable, easy way to get around

Mar 27, 2024

In this month’s Multimodal Movement segment on KITV, we feature Biki, Honolulu’s only bikeshare program. It offers kamaaina membership and 130 locations, which makes it an easy and affordable way for users to get to their destinations. 

Here are some tips on how to Biki:

  • Use the PBSC App to see the location and real-time status of all Biki stops
  • If you’re a resident, sign up for a Kama‘āina membership on
  • Use Biki to get to and from popular community events where parking is scarce and/or expensive

These Biki segments are just one of many this year that will share tips on joining the multimodal movement. These highlight the benefits of riding the bus, biking, rail and walking, among others.

Viewers will see how everyday multimodal transportation users go about their day without having to depend on driving a car, how making the choice is easy, and how it helps to reduce carbon emissions and traffic. The goal is to increase awareness of multimodal transportation choices and encourage residents to consider changing their routine and mindset about getting around. Of the 797,953 Biki trips that took place in 2023, 62% of them were taken by Hawaii residents.

Another significant benefit of not owning a car is saving money on gas and maintenance. In Hawaii, personal vehicles cost an average of $16,200 per household per year. Factoring in all public costs (state and county expenditures, social and economic trade-offs, and real estate value of land set aside for roadways and parking), the total comes to an estimated $40,600 per household per year.
