Creation of Oahu’s First Pedestrian Plan underway as Bicycle Master Plan is updated

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, November 9, 2017

Honolulu – The City and County of Honolulu Department of Transportation Services (DTS) is excited to announce the creation of the first O‘ahu Pedestrian Plan and an update of the 2012 Bicycle Master Plan.

The Pedestrian Plan will be a long-term action plan to create vibrant, safe, and accessible streetscapes that serve as a model for the nation. The Pedestrian Plan will begin with an island-wide inventory of existing pedestrian facilities to document their condition and quality. The inventory will be followed by technical recommendations for sidewalk and public realm improvements that are consistent with the City and County of Honolulu’s Complete Streets Ordinance. The final task includes a prioritization of improvements that enhance mobility, connectivity, and safety for pedestrians.

The Bicycle Master Plan, also called the O‘ahu Bike Plan, guides the implementation of bikeway improvements and supports the growth of bicycling as a safe and convenient transportation option. The first publication of the plan was in 2012. The current update will include a low-stress network of bikeways for existing and prospective bike riders with a wide range of skill levels.

Public participation is critical to ensuring these plans address your needs. For community meeting dates, to provide feedback, and to subscribe to our mailing list, please visit the respective project pages below or visit the Complete Streets homepage at:

Community engagement is important to ensure the Department of Transportation Services develops recommendations that reflect community needs and character.
For questions and/or comments on the O‘ahu Pedestrian Plan, please contact Nicola Szibbo, Transportation Planner at (808) 768-8359. For questions and/or comments on the O‘ahu Bike Plan update, please contact Chris Sayers, Bicycle Coordinator, at (808) 768-8335.
