Getaround is rolling into Seattle to help its booming population get from point A to point B and even point C at the tap of a button. As one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., Seattle’s roads are grinding to a halt and its public transit system has become overcrowded. But our peer-to-peer carsharing platform is an instant solution that actually takes cars off the road, alleviating gridlock and reducing CO2. And—bonus—commuters who leave their cars parked all day can earn some extra bucks! We’ve arrived just in time for you Seattleites to escape for those summer camping trips or finally move that old couch across town to Goodwill.
How carsharing with Getaround works
Getaround is here to help with your transportation needs and make driving easier and more efficient by mitigating traffic.
We give renters easy access to the cars that are already out there, with no waiting in line and no hassle meeting up with the car owner—because there’s no key needed to get in! Thanks to our Getaround Connect™ technology, all you need is the iOS or Android mobile app to instantly book, locate, and unlock the cars you rent. And most cars are close enough for users to walk to.
Why carshare with Getaround?
A University of California study found that every shared car replaces about 10 cars that would otherwise be jamming the streets. And every 1,000 shared cars has the power to offset 50 million pounds of carbon dioxide. A two-fold solution to keep your beautiful and bountiful parkland in tact for the long haul.
In addition to being environmentally sustainable, peer-to-peer carsharing is a great way for local creatives, baristas, and self-made entrepreneurs to earn passive income if they own a car. Instead of leaving it parked while they pound the pavement, they can put their cars to work too and earn $1,000 or more per month. Make your car hustle like you do!
Cars can be booked for a block of days or just an hour, depending on your needs. Insurance and 24/7 roadside assistance are always included. Join the carsharing community and breathe in that fresh mountain and coastal air. Already feels pretty great doesn’t it?
