GM’s Maven and Uber to pilot flexible car-sharing offer

Maven, General Motors’ personal mobility brand, and Uber Technologies, Inc., the nation’s leading ridesharing service, are teaming up to provide people who want to drive and earn money on the Uber platform the option to lease qualified vehicles by the week or longer at discounted rates with no mileage limits.

The 90-day pilot will launch in San Francisco as part of Uber’s Vehicle Solutions program, which provides driver-partners flexible options to access vehicles they can drive on the Uber platform.

As part of the pilot, people who’ve signed up to drive with Uber will be able to find a qualifying vehicle at a conveniently located pickup location in San Francisco. Vehicles offered in the pilot will include the Chevrolet Cruze, Malibu and Trax. Insurance coverage is included in the cost of every lease for a weekly price of $179 plus taxes and fees. There are no additional fees if a driver utilizes the vehicle for personal use. The comprehensive Chevrolet dealer network will provide support for servicing needs.

Maven recently expanded its Maven City car sharing to Los Angeles. In nine months, Maven has grown to nine markets: Ann Arbor, Michigan, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., with more on the way.

Maven members have now driven more than 23 million miles through more than 12,000 reservations.
