Getaround est la plateforme d’autopartage leader dans le Monde avec une communauté de plus de 5 millions d’utilisateurs se partageant des milliers de voitures dans plus de 300 villes aux Etats-Unis et en Europe.

L’app Getaround permet aux citadins qui ne possèdent pas de voiture de réserver un véhicule instantanément, que ce soit pour quelques heures ou quelques jours, directement de leur smartphone.

Créée en 2009, la startup a connu une très forte croissance: elle est maintenant présente dans 8 pays et s’est récemment étendue en Europe avec l’acquisition des startups d’autopartage Drivy et Nabobil.

Le siège est à San Francisco et l’équipe possède des bureaux à Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelone, et Oslo.

Getaround connects safe, convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work. 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 their own car-sharing businesses. 

Our connected car technology allows guests to book and unlock 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. 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.

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.
