Biki on Mānoa Campus!
On Dec. 1, 2018, six Biki Stops were installed on the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa campus. These Biki Stops are conveniently located throughout upper and lower campus and contain nearly 150 Biki docking points.
“We are excited to partner with Biki to offer our UH community an additional alternative method of transportation that is convenient, sustainable, and budget friendly,” Commuter Services Manager Cate Matsushima said. “We’ve been anxiously awaiting the installation of these Biki Stops and encourage students, faculty, and staff to try out these Biki bikes.”
A UH email (@hawaii.edu) or a UH-affiliate email address must be used to sign up.
Biki is Honolulu’s bikeshare program that offers 130 conveniently located self-service Biki Stops from Iwilei to Diamond Head and 1,300 Biki bikes. All Biki Stop locations are available on the Biki Mobile App.

Biki is Honolulu’s bikeshare program, a form of public transit using a network of bikes that are available to the public for short trips around town. When it’s too far to walk, but too close to drive, you can now use Biki instead. Simply check out a Biki bike at over 100 solar-powered Biki Stops
, ride to your destination, and dock your bike at a nearby Biki Stop.
There are six Biki Stop sites at the UH Mānoa campus (click here to see the map of the locations
- Off Dole Street between Frear Hall and Gateway House (relocation of bike racks would be near the Biki Stop)
- On the walkway between Hamilton Library and Henke Hall on the makai side of Paradise Palms Café (relocation of bike racks will be across the walkway)
- On the makai side of Campus Road outside of Sinclair Library
- On the bridge from the parking garage to the Law School (relocation of bike racks will be evaluated as construction at the Law School is completed)
- Between the Art Building and the Warrior Recreation Center (relocation of bike racks will be on the other side of the light pole, next to Biki Station)
- Across from Duke Kahanamoku Pool on the makai side of Lower Campus Road, on the Diamond Head side of the Varsity Circle entrance gate
These bike racks have been relocated to another part of campus. Please see the responses to the previous question for more information.
Biki is for everyone 16 and over who is capable of riding a bike, even if you don’t bike now. Looking for the opportunity to learn how to bike or interested in a refresher course on the rules of the road? Our partners at the Hawaiʻi Bicycling League
can help you with that. Whether you’re a student, faculty, or staff, there is a trip in your day that Biki can help you with.
Bikeshare can still be a convenient transportation option even if you own your own bike. You can Biki for one-way trips in conjunction with TheBus
, ride share, carpooling with friends, or when you want to leave your own bike at home for security or storage reasons. It provides you with the freedom of choice and saves the hassle of having to carry around a bike lock and bike lights.
There are 1,000 bikes and over 100 Biki Stops. The planned expansion will increase this number to approximately 1,300 bikes at 140 Biki Stops. Download the Biki app

You can take the Biki bike outside of the service area
, but it’s a good idea not to go too far, since you will have to return to the service area to dock your bike at a Biki Stop. Monthly membership plans incur additional overage fees after 30 and 60 minutes.
Familiarize yourself with the rules of the road
, cycling etiquette, system map and safety tips. Please reference the City & County of Honolulu’s rules of the road, or join FREE workshops
hosted by the Hawaiʻi Bicycling League to familiarize yourself with Hawaiʻi’s bike laws and feeling safe! Biki helmets are available for a $20 donation at their Kakaʻako headquarters (914 Ala Moana Boulevard), members can also show their Biki Pass at Island Triathlon and Bike (Kapahulu) to get 10% off their purchases. Before each ride, always be sure to adjust the seat to a comfortable height and secure any belongings in the front basket. It’s also a good idea to squeeze the brakes to make sure there’s good resistance, and to check the tires to make sure they’re not flat.
Go to any Biki Stop and push the bike into an open docking point. A green light will flash to signal the bike is now locked into the system and has been returned successfully. If you do not see the green light please try pushing the bike into the dock again or call customer service to make sure it was returned properly.
Return the bike to any Biki Stop and hit the red wrench button on the dock. It will be locked in place and our operations team will be alerted. Then, check out another bike.
