"We envision a world in which all cars are shared. There are one billion cars in the world, a number that is set to double in the next 10 years—we’re doing everything we can to stop that from happening. We founded Getaround to change the way that people think about cars. With the average car sitting idle 22 hours out of each day, we knew there had to be a better way to put the cars parked on our streets to better use. By providing a safe and seamless way for people to share cars with each other we want to change the way the world thinks about car ownership. Learn more here. "
