Hawaii Island Bikeshare
Want to ride around town but don’t have a bike? PATH has put together the HIBIKE bikeshare system in both Hilo and Kona. Use the automated kiosks to rent a bike by the half-hour or subscribe for a monthly fee. Find bikeshare stations, purchase monthly memberships and learn more on the HIBIKE website or by visiting the PBSC app.
PATH has partnered with the County of Hawaii Mass Transit Agency to provide a FREE 30-minute HIBIKE rental for riders of the Hele-On. Just ask the Hele-On driver for a free code and hop on the HIBIKE to your next destination.
KITV featured the HIBIKE and Mass Transit partnership on their Multimodal Mondays segment. Check it out to learn more about PATH’s partnership with Mass Transit and how easy it is to use the HIBIKE bikeshare system.
