Caldwell: No Limebike Treatment for Ride Sharee
By News Release @ 5:09 PM :: 2594 Views :: Honolulu County, Small Business

City welcomes Ride Sharee to be a part of multimodal Honolulu

News Release from City and County of Honolulu, November 9, 2018

Honolulu – With the recent announcement that Ride Sharee, a bike-sharing company registered to conduct business under the name Neptune New Solutions LLC, has started operations here on O‘ahu, Transportation Services Deputy Director Jon Nouchi issued the following statement:

“The city supports the development of multimodal transportation alternatives and welcomes Ride Sharee as another option for residents and visitors to explore our city. It appears Ride Sharee is committed to a business model that utilizes only private property to conduct all commercial transactions to rent bicycles that are self-powered by the rider. However, all companies should be aware that city property, including public bicycle racks, cannot be used for commercial transactions until and unless they first obtain authorization from the city.”

(Unlike Limebike, Ride Sharee hired local insider Alex Wong.  That makes all the difference.  It is amusing to watch them try to explain why Ride Sharee bikes are OK and Limebikes are not.)

Lime of California attempted to launch dockless, electric scooters in May by placing them on sidewalks overnight, but was quickly booted by the city administration, which said they could not legally be parked on sidewalks.

“There are challenges, mind you,” said Wong, “but I believe that users learn good riding habits, no different than if they were renting a car and obeying traffic laws with regards to how they drive and where they park. Sharing technology is a bet on the human race. It is a bet that humans are civilized and will treat and respect property as if it is their own. To use common sense and take care of the overall community with regards to how to park, how to ride and respect for your fellow human being.”

Ride Sharee said it is spending time educating the public about where the bikes can be parked — either at private bike parking locations shown on its app or at any public bike rack with a convenience fee. Ride Sharee said its bikes should never be parked inside a housing compound or in an above-ground or underground parking space.

The business was registered in July to Neptune New Solutions LLC, which lists Deng Suo and Wong as members, according to state business registration records.
