Beep, Inc. has announced a brand new, first-of-its-kind partnership with both the Hawai’i Department of Transportation (HDOT) and Sustainability Partners (SP) to introduce an 18-month pilot for a set of autonomous shuttles at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL) in Honolulu.

The pilot programme will see four autonomous and electric shuttles operating across the site, each with a capacity of up to 11 passengers including a shuttle attendant.

The pilot was program made possible by essential infrastructure leader, Sustainability Partners
Beep CEO Joe Moye, said:

Through our partnership with Sustainability Partners, we’re honored that HDOT and HNL have placed their trust in our experience, leadership and differentiated approach of safe and integrated autonomous mobility with the launch of the Miki shuttle pilot service.

Our fleet of turnkey shared and electric autonomous shuttles prioritizes safety and sustainability while enhancing the airport travel experience for passengers. As Beep continues to pioneer innovative partnerships with airports nationwide, this inaugural test program showcases the emerging potential of advanced solutions that can augment existing transport options everywhere, unveiling a new era of seamless, efficient passenger mobility.

The vehicles will provide first- and last-mile services alongside the site’s existing Wiki Wiki shuttle buses, moving between HNL’s C Gates with a set of three stops for Miki’s short route, while a longer route will operate between C and G Gates with two stops.

Hawai‘i Department of Transportation Director Ed Sniffen, said:

We are pleased to work with Beep to implement an innovative new approach to passenger mobility that brings autonomous transportation technology to the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

Beep and the Miki shuttles embody the future of transportation across the state, supporting our larger sustainability goals while enhancing the traveler experience.

Services will run seven days a week between the hours of 7:00 and 22:00 local time, including full operation on holidays and weekends.
