The future of carsharing has officially arrived in the Northeast, just in time for summer. We’re proud to share that Getaround is bringing our game-changing, on-demand service to the Tri-State Area, starting in the cities of Hoboken, Weehawken, and Jersey City.
Our 30,000+ members in Northern New Jersey and New York City can now find, rent, and unlock dozens of cars shared nearby – all from their phone. From this 2015 Jeep Renegade to this 2014 Toyota Prius C, there’s a Getaround car for every occasion.
New Jersey residents who list their cars on Getaround are already loving the benefits of the extra income, our connected technology, and our $1M insurance policy. Phil Mazo of Hoboken, who shares his Toyota Matrix, commented, “The innovative use of technology not only allows renters to unlock my car through the mobile app, but has saved me time and energy.”
Getaround enriches Northern New Jersey’s existing transportation network in two key ways: by empowering residents who don’t own a car to continue living car-free and by providing those who do with an easy way to earn extra cash.
“With more than half of Hoboken residents commuting to work by public transportation, many only use their cars on weekends while others want to live car-free and avoid the cost and hassle of car ownership,” said Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Peer-to-peer car-sharing, like Getaround, is an innovative mobility option that meets the needs of both groups and can help to take cars off the road and reduce pollution and traffic.”
We’re rolling out the welcome mat across the Tri-State Area – and we hope you’ll join our growing community!
