In 2014, we discovered the way people are sharing cars is changing. We saw a huge increase in the seamless experiences and customer happiness through our adoption of an on-demand reservation system. As of January 30th 2015, Getaround will no longer support trips booked via rental request.
Getaround will honor any trips booked before January 30th 2015.
What does this mean for me?
This will effect members who rent Getaround cars through the request reservation system. In Chicago, Austin, San Diego, and Los Angeles, Getaround will not be available for a short period of time. We have a lot of exciting growth planned for 2015, and will be back in these cities soon with our on-demand car sharing experience.
If you live in the Bay Area or Portland, you will continue to see Getaround cars available near you. These communities are growing quickly so keep an eye out for new cars near you.
