ABOUT GETAROUND

We make cities and communities better places to live.

Getaround® is creating the world’s best car sharing marketplace with proprietary technology and data that make sharing vehicles superior to owning them. Our community includes guests who rely on our cars for on-demand mobility and hosts who share cars on our platform, including those who operate car sharing businesses.

Empowering people with convenient access to the cars they need, whenever they need them.

Getaround improves everyone’s quality of life, including people who can’t own cars or don’t have access to the vehicles they need. Our connected car technology allows guests to book a wide variety of vehicles directly from our app without ever having to meet anyone in person, carry an access card, wait in line, or coordinate picking up keys.

Improving mobility by relieving congestion and making public transit easier to use.

Cars are parked 22 hours a day on average. When we share cars, we don’t need as many on the road, which means fewer accidents, reduced traffic, and less space required for parking. Car sharing modernizes mobility by allowing people to connect multiple forms of efficient transportation for any type of use case.

Protecting our environment by reducing pollution and advancing sustainable energy.

Studies show that when car sharing is available, people drive less and drive vehicles more appropriate for their use case, which can reduce household carbon emissions by up to 40%. Also, shared cars are used more frequently and retired more quickly, accelerating the adoption of newer, more energy-efficient vehicles.

Powered by
Getaround Connect®®

To make sharing a car as easy as owning your own, we built the only hardware designed specifically for contactless, peer-to-peer car sharing.

The Getaround Connect® allows guests to find, book, and unlock cars right from their phone, while enabling hosts to securely share cars and become a business owner.
