Bikeshare Hawaii Welcomes “Vacationing Bikes”  from New York City and Seattle

Bikeshare Hawaii today announced that bikes from Seattle's Pronto Cycle Share, “Jen”, and New York City’s Citi Bike Bikeshare organization, “Mike”, will be “vacationing” on Oahu in January to share the benefits of bikesharing, which is a transportation system that enables its customers to make short trips between a network of unattended bike docking stations. The public is invited to meet the bikes and keep up with the action via social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, while local groups are encouraged to request a talk about bikesharing from BikeShare Hawaii. Already established in 57 U.S. cities, bikesharing is growing rapidly around the world and is in place or expected to launch in most other major U.S. cities, including Honolulu, in the next few years.

“Since we launched the program in 2013, we’ve provided more than $30,000 in free advertising to local community organizations and non-profits,” said Arden Penton, Volta’s Director of Media and Operations.  “We understand so many Hawaii non-profits operate on very small budgets and marketing dollars are often non-existent. Awareness Powered by Volta can give some kokua to our non-profits and allow them to share their messages more effectively.”
