Always wanted to see what it’s like to drive with Uber, but don’t own a car? If you live in San Francisco, now you can!
Getaround has teamed up with Uber so you can rent dedicated ride-share ready cars and turn your extra time into money. Whether you’re saving up for a weekend adventure or just want a little extra spending money after you’ve paid rent, earn money when it’s convenient for you with Getaround and Uber.
Our mission has always been two-fold: to empower people to earn income from their cars and to allow people to live car-free. Now, people in San Francisco can do both!
How it works
It’s easy! All you need is a driver’s license, the Uber and Getaround apps and a couple hours of free time to get started.
Simply upload your driver’s license to the Uber app, pass the same background check as others driving with Uber, and then reserve your Getaround car. Cars dedicated to this pilot are available in parking lots all over SF and have passed a Getaround inspection, so you can rest assured they are ready for the road.
When you get to your car, use the Getaround app to unlock your car. Then, hit the road and start earning money. When you’re done, drop off the car in its dedicated parking space.
The cost of your first rental is covered for up to 14 hours. After that, it’s a flat fee of $5 per hour, including insurance, gas, and mileage, so you’re free to drive as much as you’d like.
Why we’re excited
We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to provide our community with flexible economic opportunities. Our pilot with Uber allows renters, and those who don’t own cars, to tap into that earning potential on their own schedule. Uber has long been a leader in providing people with opportunities to earn, and together we can provide that opportunity to even more people without the barrier of car ownership.
Getaround works hard to minimize the need for car ownership as it results in less traffic congestion and less environmental impact. Between Getaround and on-demand ride-hailing options like UberX, we can move faster and further toward our goal of taking more cars off the road.
