Hui, a round-trip, station-based car share service, is a startup within Servco that offers a new mobility option for Honolulu residents and visitors who are looking for access to a vehicle without the hassle of car ownership or a traditional car rental. As the most innovative car share service to hit the Hawaii market, it allows members to locate, reserve, and manage payments through the Hui Car Share mobile app for iOS and Android devices. The service utilizes Toyota’s Smart Key Box technology, which generates a digital key with each reservation that allows Hui users to lock and unlock, as well as start vehicles via their smartphone.
