The bike lanes are a big step in making Waiʻalae Avenue a “Complete Street.” These lanes will result in safety benefits for pedestrians, motorists, and bicyclists, commuting to and from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The University of Hawaiʻi Commuter Services played an important role in supporting this important initiative by conducting surveys, sign waving, and providing a voice for the UHM campus community’s needs.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell says he will keep pushing to create more bike lanes across the island.

“I want to start here at King Street and go forward, march forward every single year, and keep pushing because I believe, once we get a critical number of protected bike lanes you are going to see a change in who rides and it is a lot easier,” Caldwell said.

The city is also building bicycle lanes on King and Beretania Streets.
