The City and County of Honolulu is dedicated to making O'ahu a bicycle-friendly place. DTS has recently completed the O'ahu Bike Plan. An update to the 1999 Honolulu Bicycle Master Plan, the new plan will guide future planning to better integrate bicycling into the island's transportation system. Currently, Oahu has 46 miles of bike paths, 52 miles of bike lanes, and 36 miles of bike routes. Also, all of the City's transit buses are equipped with bike racks. For more information on our bicycle program, or if you have a suggestion, please contact us.
New Bike Parking Map! We have recently completed a map showing the locations of all the bike racks on Oahu. This map is a layer of the Oahu Bikeways Map so it can be switched on and off. Click on "Layers" to switch any layer on or off. This map is a work in progress and it is regularly being updated. If you know of a rack that's not on this map, please let us know.
Bike Racks go Bold! The new shipment of bike racks are in and DTS is adding some color and excitement with new colorful racks. The new racks stand out more and are just more fun. Look for them at a location near you.
The Waialae Avenue bikeway project is going ahead and will be integrated into the Department of Design and Construction's resurfacing project. The latest design includes bike lanes on both sides of Waialae Avenue from Saint Louis Drive to Palolo/5th Avenue. Between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue it was necessary to keep the five travel lanes. To mitigate the break in the uphill bike lane, enhanced sharrows with a green background will be added on the makai side of the street. There will be sharrows on the mauka side of the road from Palolo Avenue to 11th Avenue and bike lanes from 6th Avenue to 11th Avenue on the makai side. From 11th Avenue to 17th Avenue sharrows will be added on both sides.
The Mayor's Advisory Committee on Bicycling is comprised of citizens who are interested in improving conditions for bicycling in Honolulu. The Committee meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at the Frank F. Fasi Municipal Building. The meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in becoming a member or would like to attend a meeting, please contact us.
The City and County of Honolulu sponsors the BikeEd Hawaii bicycle education program, which is run by the Hawaii Bicycling League. This nationally recognized program teaches on-road bicycle safety classes to fourth grade students on O'ahu. For more information about this program, visit the Hawaii Bicycling League's website at www.hbl.org/bikeed.
The City has installed more than 450 of the "BikeBike" parking racks throughout Oahu. These racks are meant for short-term parking and it is not recommended to leave your bike on them overnight. They are designed to hold up to 4 bikes and are located on City property in front of businesses and residences. The City has also installed many of the "ribbon" or "wave" shaped racks where there is sufficient space. Click here for a map of the bike racks on Oahu. If you have a suggestion for a location and would like to request a rack, please contact us.
