It’s a huge day for carsharing in Chicago. Not only are we officially launching our game-changing , on-demand service throughout the Windy City – but we’re also announcing our part in a revolutionary, $715,000 federally funded study designed to examine the impact of carsharing in Chicago.
- Low-density and suburban neighborhoods
- Low and moderate-income communities
- Closed network communities in large residential developments
The study will rely on Getaround Connect™ (our unique connected-car technology) to gather and share useful information with both the Chicago and Illinois Departments of Transportation.
Now with Getaround in and around the Chicago area, residents can easily find, rent and unlock amazing cars nearby, right from their phone. And with nearly 50 cars already available from Wrigley Field to Bronzeville, we’re really starting to change the way Chicagoans get around.
Chicago’s car owners are also seeing the benefits of sharing their cars. For example Tyler Morris, a recent grad who used to drive his car daily, now commutes by CTA and is successfully using Getaround to offset his monthly car payments and parking fees.
