Hawaii "State Peddles Program for Renting of Bicycles"

According to the "Honolulu Star Advertiser" newspaper, "A bike rental program to promote an active lifestyle and reduce traffic will officially launch on Friday in Kailua."

"Hawaii B-cycle is the first program of its kind in the state, and part of a $100,000 pilot project of the state Department of Health's Healthy Hawaii Initiative. Although the official launch takes place Friday, dozens of riders already have used the bikes over the past couple of weeks."

"Officials say the concept is to encourage people to commute on the bikes in short time periods to promote healthy living and alleviate congestion. Instead of sitting in their cars, they can hop on a bicycle."
