HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - But first, the company is looking for drivers to help fine-tune the program.
Servco Pacific plans to launch a new service called 'Hui' using about 50 Toyota and Lexus vehicles at 16 stations across Oahu, stretching from Downtown Honolulu to Kaimuki.
"In communities like Kakaako, it really kind of makes sense to round out that transportation portfolio for consumers, so it's really kind of based on what consumers have been telling us," said Thor Toma, senior vice president of Hui Car Share. "Users can rent by the hour or by the day. Gas is included, insurance is included, 24-hour roadside assistance."
Drivers can use Hui's mobile app on their cell phones to make reservation, as well as lock and unlock the vehicle, start the car and manage payments.
Servco employees were the first to test the program's interface, and a closed pilot group also offered feedback. The company is now opening the testing phase of the project to volunteers from the public.
"We really want to get the users' feedback and have them tell us what they like about it, what they don't like about it, and hopefully make the program the best it can be at time of launch," said Toma.
Enterprise has a car share program on Oahu. Individuals also rent out their own personal vehicles using a car share app called Turo.
Hui Car Share is still finalizing its prices.
