Bike Share vs Bike Rental

We are often asked “What is Biki Bike Share”?

The main differences between biki bike share and bike rentals are the duration of the trip and the network of pick-up / drop-off locations. Bike share emphasizes short trips from one Biki Bike Share Stop to another within the network, while bike rentals are typically intended for longer, recreational rides with one pick-up and drop-off location. *

Bike share was conceived to provide ‘last-mile’ transportation for commuters. We love that bike share helps to relieve traffic congestion and pollution in our city, since workers downtown and in Waikiki can grab a bike near their home or bus stop.  That said, we believe we have a much better option for vacationers.
