About Getaround

We imagine a world with fewer cars, without traffic jams, and less pollution. Join our rapidly growing movement.

We're tackling a big problem: car overpopulation

Our transportation system is inefficient and unsustainable.

1 billion

There are 1 billion cars in the world. Unfortunately we're set to double this in the next 10 years.

10 cars

Every car on Getaround takes 10 cars off the road. Sharing cars makes a difference.

22 hours

The average car sits idle 22 hours a day. That's 20 billion car hours wasted every day.

On-demand carsharing marketplace

Share cars with people nearby. Rent anything from a Prius to a Tesla.
Rent, unlock, and drive – all with your phone.

In 2011 Getaround won TechCrunch Disrupt.
Getaround launched on-demand carsharing in 2013.
Getaround has grown to over 200,000 members across the US.
