Ride sharing has taken off, and General Motors wants in, in a big way.
The car manufacturer announced today, on its website, that it will expand its Maven Gig service to a number of large cities by the fall.
Maven Gig rents drivers cars for personal and commercial purposes for a week for a set price that includes insurance, maintenance and unlimited miles. The cars are used for ride sharing services like Uber and Lyft, food delivery and the like.
Cars start at $189 plus tax per week for a Chevy Cruze, or $225 per week (plus tax) for a more luxurious Impala. However, GM notes that its all-electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Bolt EV, is its most popular rental at $219 per week plus tax.
Maven Gig started in San Diego and San Francisco earlier this year, and by the fall, will be in Los Angeles, Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.
