Car-sharing platform Getaround expands to Seattle

Getaround is rolling into Seattle to help its booming population get from point A to point B and even point C at the tap of a button.

As one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., Seattle’s roads are grinding to a halt and its public transit system has become overcrowded. But Getaround’s peer-to-peer carsharing platform is an instant solution that actually takes cars off the road, alleviating gridlock and reducing CO2.

The company gives renters easy access to the cars that are already out there, with no waiting in line and no hassle meeting up with the car owner because there’s no key needed to get in. Due to the company’s Getaround Connect technology, all the user needs is the iOS or Android mobile app to instantly book, locate, and unlock the cars they rent. Most cars are close enough for users to walk to.
