Do high gas prices make you want to park your car and take a bike to work or school? Thanks to a new state program, you can rent one.
Two bicycle sharing stations have opened in Kailua. They're the first in the state.
According to the transportation department, the system has flourished in other states and now it's being tested on Oahu.
"You just walk up to the station and wake up the station by just tapping it. Then you check out a bike," Hawaii B Cycle's Nguyen Le said. "You just slide your credit card. So the bike is all ready to roll. You can just swing the bike out and you can head on your way."
It will cost $50 for a one year membership and five dollars for a 24-hour pass.
Once you're a member, the first half hour is free. After that it will cost $2.50 for every half hour.
