Getaround is an on-demand carsharing marketplace powered by our proprietary hardware technology, the Getaround Connect.
We founded Getaround to change the way that people think about cars. With the average car sitting idle 22 hours out of each day, we knew there had to be a better way to put the cars parked on our streets to better use. By providing a safe and seamless way for people to share cars with each other we want to change the way the world thinks about car ownership. Headquartered in San Francisco since 2009, we won TechCrunch Disrupt in 2011, and launched on-demand carsharing just two years later.
Getaround has grown to over 200,000 members across the US by allowing users to rent, unlock and drive — all with your phone. Rates start at $5/hour including insurance and no membership fees. Car owners conveniently share their cars earning $500-$1000 a month.
