GM offers car-sharing by the month
Maven users in Los Angeles and San Francisco are now able to “share” a car on a monthly basis. GM's car-sharing subsidiary previously only offered hourly or daily options for its car-sharing fleet.
Subscribers to the new service, called Maven Reserve, will also get a dedicated parking space and insurance for the duration of the reservation, plus $100 worth of petrol. No membership or application fees are due.
Maven aims this new service at professional types who need transportation for longer stretches than just a few days at a time. In the coming weeks, the GM daughter will roll out the service in other U.S. cities. Prices for monthly rentals will vary from city to city.
Launched at the start of last year, Maven was destined to be GM's personal mobility brand. It has since grown to 17 cities in the U.S. and Canada, with 25,000 members who have made more than 32,000 reservations.
