Success of the King Street lane
"Protected bike lanes provide a safe place for bicyclists and are part of a multi-modal transportation system."
-Mayor Kirk Caldwell
The single biggest result of the BYK Project was the two way King Street protected bicycle lane. This lane is a core component of the emerging "low stress" bicycle network in Honolulu. The lane opened in December of 2014. Initially marked as a one way facility, the lane was converted to a two way facility in the summer of 2015. This has resulted in almost doubling the number of people cycling along the corridor.
