Nonprofit Bikeshare Hawaii, which manages Honolulu's bikeshare program, Biki, named five members to its board of directors on Tuesday.

Josh Feldman, president and CEO of Tori Richard, Ltd.; Michael Robinson, vice president of government relations and community affairs for Hawaii Pacific Health; Marcy Fleming, commercial real estate division transactions manager for Kamehameha Schools; Wes Frysztacki, director of the City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services; and retired business executive and University of Hawaii Vice Chair Randy Moore, will join the nonprofit's board.

The new board members join Bikeshare Hawaii’s inaugural board members – Bruce Coppa, president of Capitol Consultants of Hawaii; Rick Egged, president of the Waikiki Improvement Association; and Greg Gaug, Ulupono Initiative vice president of investments. Gaug will continue to serve as board chair.

“With the successful launch of Biki in Honolulu, we’re excited to welcome our new board members to help guide Bikeshare Hawaii into the future,” Gaug said in a statement. “These individuals bring a wealth of professional experience and knowledge, and will be tremendous assets as we chart the future of Biki.”

Biki, which launched in June, reported more than 47,000 rides and 12,737 total users in its first month.

Biki says it has 100 self-service kiosks from Chinatown to Diamond Head with a capacity of up to 1,000 bikes.
