Biking is booming during COVID-19, Hawaii Bicycling League celebrates Bike Month in June with virtual workshops, webinars and trivia nights, Biki partners with Farm Link Hawaii to raise awareness about local food sourcing and more.
Many have asked how Biki is doing throughout this pandemic. Is ridership down? Will we continue to operate despite the extended stay-at-home orders?
In short, yes. We are working very hard to continue to provide the 24/7 service many residents have come to depend on, despite a significant drop in ridership. To give some perspective, 1,413 trips were taken yesterday, compared to 4,312 trips on the same day last year. While we love and miss seeing more people on bikes, we’re happy that our riders are complying with the current stay-at-home orders and using Biki for essential trips only.
This month, 120 employees representing 7 different businesses have been participating in the first-ever Oahu Commute Challenge, hosted by STCH and Blue Planet Foundation. Participants were equipped with a monthly Bus pass, rideshare credits and a Biki Commuter Plan, and encouraged to get out of their personal vehicles and switch to cleaner, healthier and more efficient modes of transportation for the chance to win prizes.
