User agrees that User understands and takes responsibility for such risks, dangers, and hazards.  User agrees that if User’s use of any of the Program Equipment causes injury or damage to another person or property, then User shall be liable for all resulting injuries, damages, and related costs.  By choosing to ride a Bicycle provided through the Program, User assumes all responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and User agrees that SBSH and the other Released Parties are not responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by User with respect to any person or property, including the Bicycle itself.User is solely and fully responsible for the safe operation of the Bicycle at all times.  User understands and agrees that a Bicycle is a machine that may malfunction even if properly maintained, that such malfunction may cause injury and that the Released Parties shall not be responsible for the malfunction of any Program Equipment including the Bicycles.  User understands and agrees that neither SBSH nor any of the Released Parties is a common carrier, and that the opportunity to check out a Bicycle is for convenience and/or transportation only, and such opportunity is intended for those persons who are able and qualified to operate a Bicycle. SBSH is to do it’s best to avoid and correct technical glitches. User accepts it is possible and will not demand more than the amount incorrectly charged, if any. Both parties agree to use best efforts to resolve disputed amounts resulting from technical glitch(s) before escalating. The terms of this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement.

 

  1. Indemnification. To the maximum extent permitted by law, User expressly agrees to indemnify, release and hold harmless the Released Parties (including Released Parties’ employees, agents, representatives, attorneys, members, directors, principals and affiliates) from all claims, damages, liabilities, actions and/or judgments (including property loss or damage, personal injury or loss of life), whether caused by the sole or partial negligence of the Released Parties and/or the negligence of others, whether based upon breach of contract, breach of warranty, active or passive negligence or any other legal theory, arising from, or related to, this Agreement, User’s check out of a Bicycle, User’s use of the Program Equipment and/or User’s participation in the Program.  The terms of this Section shall survive termination of this Agreement.

Fee Policies and Procedures

 

Availability

SBSH undertakes to maintain the Program 7 days a week, 24-hours a day. There will be periods where the Program is unavailable due to technical problems, required service or software updates, requirements of the City or other authorities, or circumstances beyond SBSH's control.

 

SBSH crews will periodically move Bicycles from overfull to less full Stations and will periodically perform maintenance on the Stations and Bicycles. However, SBSH does not guarantee that you will find an available Bicycle or an empty Bicycle Dock at any particular Station at any particular time or that Stations or Bicycles will be in working order at all times. SBSH is not responsible for any transportation fees associated with the availability of working bicycles and docks.

 

Activation of Biki Pass

Users who are residents of the island of Oahu who sign up for a Price Plan on gobiki.org can receive their Biki Pass via the US Mail.  Alternatively, they may pick up a Biki Pass at the offices of Biki during normal business hours.  Biki Passes must be activated upon receipt by visiting gobiki.org.

 

Users who use a Station to purchase a Biki pricing plan will not receive a Biki Pass.  Instead, Users will use the same credit or debit card used to purchase their plan to access Bicycles.  The credit or debit card will be inserted into the Station kiosk each time the User wishes to release a Bicycle and a new 5-digit ride code will be provided to release a Bicycle each time.

 

Payment Confirmation and Receipt of Biki Pass

Users who purchase a Biki Pass online should receive payment confirmation via e-mail. SBSH will mail Biki Passes within three business days of purchase if applicable but does not guarantee delivery time. If Users do not receive a payment confirmation or their Biki Pass within this time period, contact SBSH support at 1-888-340-2454.

 

Credit Card Transactions

Biki accepts Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Diners Club, JCB and Discover credit cards. If the credit card User provided with a User’s Biki pricing plan is terminated or is unable to process Biki transactions, User’s plan access will be terminated.

 

You agree to report any changes in your relationship with your credit card issuer, which could affect the execution of charges. SBSH is authorized by you to contact your credit card issuer to update information required to execute charges. If your credit card expires and you do not submit a new one, your account may be suspended or terminated. SBSH reserves the right to collect any unpaid or outstanding balances from the User directly or by the use of a Collection Agency of SBSH’s choosing.

 

Charges to Your Credit Card Account and Statements

 Upon signing up for a Biki pricing plan via the Station, on gobiki.org, or the Biki app, your credit or debit card will be charged immediately for the applicable amount as outlined in the “Plan and Fee Schedule”. A hold for a security deposit, of which the amount is also specified in the “Plan and Fee Schedule”, may be placed on your card. The hold on your card will be automatically released within a few days after the return of the Bicycle and applicable charges have been charged. SBSH is not responsible for any banking or credit card fees associated with a transaction.

 

If you signed up on gobiki.org, you can review your charges after logging in to your account. If your purchase was made at a Station, you may request a receipt by calling out customer service at 1-888-340-2454 and providing an email address.

 

Responsibility of Returning Biki Bicycle

To return a Bicycle, User must secure it into an available Bicycle dock at a Station (a “Bicycle Dock”). A light signal that turns yellow then green, is the only confirmation that the Bicycle has been returned and locked. A red-light signal indicates that the Bicycle is not properly secured. A Bicycle that is not properly secured remains User’s responsibility.

 

Bicycle Docking: If the light on the Bicycle Dock does not light up or flashes red, the Bicycle cannot be returned.  A user must return the Bicycle into another available Bicycle Dock.

 

Unavailability of Bicycle Docks: Users can initiate the Pause Time feature and get an additional block of time for up to 15 minutes to travel to the nearest open dock when no Bicycle Dock is available at the Station of User’s choice. User must enter User’s Biki Pass or the credit card used at the kiosk of the same Bicycle Station where no bicycle dock is available to access the Pause Time. A User can only use the Pause Time feature twice during a single ride. Users on a One-Way Plan fare do not have this option. Once a User has entered Extra Time, a User will no longer have the option to use the Pause Time feature. User acknowledges that riding outside of the service area may cause the User and Bicycle to be stranded and that it is still the User’s responsibility to return the Bicycle to a station dock.

 

Lost or Damaged Bicycles

Bicycles not returned within 24 hours are considered lost or stolen.

If User does not return a Bicycle as required by this Agreement or causes damage to a Bicycle, User agrees to pay an amount not to exceed the fee for replacement of a Bicycle, listed in “Plan and Fee Schedule.”

 

If User believes a Bicycle checked out to User has been stolen, contact 1-888-340-2454 immediately and file a police report within 24 hours.

In the event that a Bicycle checked out to User is lost or damaged, SBSH may charge User’s credit card for any excess amount owed.

 

In the event that a lost Bicycle is recovered, User must return it to SBSH. SBSH may refund lost Bicycle charges in excess of SBSH's actual recovery and repair costs and administrative costs it incurred upon a User’s request. In no event may any User take permanent possession of, or sell, a Biki Bicycle.

 

Recovered Bicycles

Bicycles that are recovered by SBSH or its affiliates may be subject to a Bike Recovery fee as outlined in the “Plan and Fee Schedule”. A recovered bicycle is defined as a bicycle that is found unattended, locked up or otherwise not in the possession of the User or someone the User has identified as an authorized user. Bike Recovery Fees are assessed at the sole discretion of SBSH. This fee does not exempt a User from Extra Time Fees or other fees.

 

Lost or Damaged Biki Pass

User is responsible for any Bicycle accessed with User’s Biki Pass. If a Biki Pass is lost or stolen, please call 1-888-340-2454 immediately to report the loss.  SBSH will immediately disable the Biki Pass and issue User a replacement for a lost/stolen fee. The Biki Pass replacement fee amount is specified in “Plan and Fee Schedule.”  Use of a lost or stolen card is the User’s sole responsibility. User agrees and acknowledges the Biki Pass is their responsibility and User will still be liable for any unauthorized use by it and will not seek relief, reimbursement, or refunds from SBSH as a result of lost, stolen, or misplaced Biki Passes.

 

A Biki Pass that has become unusable may be replaced. A Biki Pass replacement fee, of which the amount is specified in “Plan and Fee Schedule,” will apply and the original Biki Pass will be disabled.

 

Disabled Biki Passes cannot be used again.

 

Gift Certificates

Biki gift certificates are non-refundable and have no cash value. Gift certificates are non-transferrable and will expire per the expiration date printed on the gift certificate, pursuant to the local laws.

 

Google Maps

The map data that Biki may provide to you in our App is based on the current map information available to us which may be provided by a third party such as through the incorporation of the Google Maps API, and may be inaccurate or incomplete. If you utilize map functionality we make available through our App, You acknowledge and agree to be bound by Google, Inc.’s Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service, available at https://maps.google.com/help/terms_maps.html

SBSH is not responsible for any information that may be misleading, incomplete, or in any other way incorrect. Should you choose to use the navigation service provided, SBSH is not responsible for any damages to property or person that may result from use of this third-party application.

 

Refund Policy

 

Biki pricing plans are non-refundable and have no cash value. User’s Plan Price will not be refunded if User relocates, is no longer able to participate in program or if User’s plan access is terminated due to breach of this Agreement. Remaining minutes or time period on any Biki pricing plan have no cash value and may not be transferred to another Plan.

An individual 30-minute ride begins when a Bicycle is unlocked from a Biki Stop and ends when that Bicycle is redocked at any Biki Stop.  Leftover time from one 30-minute ride cannot be carried over to future 30-minute rides.  For example, if a 30-minute ride is only 20 minutes, you are within your 30-minute time limit window for that ride.  However, the 10 minutes remaining from that ride cannot be carried over to a future 30-minute ride to allow for a 40-minute ride to avoid Extra Time fees.

If you exceed 30 minutes of ride time on any and all individual 30-minute rides, you will incur Extra Time charges.  Each 30-minutes of overage or fraction of 30-minutes triggers an Extra Time fee of $4.50.  For example, if your ride is 40 minutes, you will be assessed an Extra Time fee of $4.50.  If your ride is 67 minutes, you may be assessed the Extra Time fee twice, for a total of $9.00. You will incur Extra Time fees each time you exceed your 30-minute time limit. 

You may ride as many individual 30-minute rides as you desire within the month you have purchased. However, there is a 5-minute period in which, once a user has ended a ride, they will not be able to take out another bike.

If you exceed 60 minutes of ride time on any and all individual 60-minute rides, you will incur Extra Time charges.  Each 30-minutes of overage or fraction of 30-minutes triggers an Extra Time fee of $4.50.  For example, if your ride is 70 minutes, you will be assessed an Extra Time fee of $4.50.  If your ride is 97 minutes, you will be assessed the Extra Time fee twice, for a total of $9.00.
