LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Current and future rideshare drivers alike, rejoice– there is a new way to drive for Lyft. Los Angeles startup, HyreCar, a peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace that connects thousands of vehicle owners with potential drivers, can now directly sign up drivers for Lyft. The majority of cars on the platform come pre-certified for ridesharing under Lyft's vehicle requirements, enabling new and existing drivers to find a car, get on the road and start earning in as little as 24 hours.
- Peer-to-peer car rentals for Lyft
- On-boarding through website and mobile app
- Flexible rental options by day, week or month
- Rentals available for drivers 21 years old and up
The partnership will be beneficial on many fronts. Increasing demand for Lyft's services must be met with an increase in driver supply, which will be supplemented by HyreCar's market of vehicles and drivers.
HyreCar now has the ability to sign up drivers to the Lyft platform, so those who considered ridesharing but were hesitant to commit can experiment with driving or renting a car for as few as two days. Drivers can also experiment with a variety of cars; if their vehicle qualifies only for the standard Lyft service, they can now rent a car specifically for Lyft Premier, increasing their earnings per trip. And, perhaps most importantly, HyreCar's rentals are available to anybody over the age of 21, provided they pass the security checks.
"We're very excited about this partnership. Drivers under 25 are an important demographic for us to capture, and HyreCar's vehicle solutions are the ideal fit to help us expand our market presence, both in Los Angeles and beyond." – Mike Brockhoff, Driver Supply Lead, Los Angeles, Lyft.
"Working directly with Lyft is a huge step towards our company's ultimate goal, which is to empower and connect communities through sharing and on-demand opportunity." – Joe Furnari, CEO, HyreCar.
HyreCar currently operates in 26 states across the US, with new markets opening up each month. Drivers and vehicle owners alike can utilize the marketplace to create a source of revenue where previously one did not exist. Using the website or mobile app, car owners can list their vehicles and connect to potential renters. Drivers can select to rent by the day, week, or month for on-demand service companies such as Lyft, Postmates and more.
