Hawaii B-Cycle was Hawaii's first introduction to modern bikeshare in 2011. It was a three-year pilot project limited to Kailua, Oahu. The two-station and 12-bike system was a partnership between the State Department of Health, Momentum Multisport, and B-Cycle. The State Department of Health’s Healthy Hawaii Initiative provided the initial start-up funds with an initial $100,000 grant.
Supported by the BWG, the C&C funded the Bikeshare Organizational Study. This study identified the vision, goals, and objectives for bikeshare, engaged key stakeholders, proposed an organizational and governance strategy for Honolulu, and created a high-level business plan.
