Get Around – Car Sharing in Jersey City & Beyond

Getaround car in Hoboken

Jersey City, Hoboken and Weehawken now have access to Getaround, the car-sharing app that helps non-car-owning citizens quickly navigate the city and allows car owners make money on their (mostly) parked cars.

Getaround‘s rent options range from by-the-hour for shopping/transporting heavy items/small group transport to few-day rentals for mini-trips. Jersey Shore for the weekend, anyone?

Some deets:
*Cars are completely tech enabled through Getaround Connect
*Entry is keyless and accessed through the Getaround app
*Getaround handles driver’s license and background checks
*Getaround provides insurance
*Owners earn on average $500/month

“With more than half of Hoboken residents commuting to work by public transportation, many only use their cars on weekends while others want to live car-free and avoid the cost and hassle of car ownership,” said Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Peer-to-peer car-sharing, like Getaround, is an innovative mobility option that meets the needs of both groups and can help to take cars off the road and reduce pollution and traffic.”
