Getaround partners with Parkmerced to expand car-free living

Oct 5, 2017 1 min read

We’re excited to announce that we are now the exclusive carsharing provider for Parkmerced, San Francisco’s largest multifamily rental neighborhood.

Parkmerced launched its Car-Free Living Program in May 2016 to encourage residents to use public transportation and ride-sharing as a more affordable and sustainable alternative to car ownership. As our mission to empower people to carshare everywhere also provides a sustainable alternative to car ownership, it is  a natural fit to partner with Parkmerced as they seek to offer more transportation options to their residents.

In this partnership, Parkmerced residents who own cars can generate income by listing and sharing their cars. Residents enrolled in the Car-Free Living Program can allocate up to $100 monthly to Getaround, the cost of which is provided by Parkmerced. It’s a win-win for the entire community!

With more people seeking housing in core urban areas, it’s essential to find ways to improve transportation options and minimize our carbon footprint. We’re proud to continue partnering with innovative businesses like Parkmerced, which reflect our commitment to creating a world where all cars are shared.
