HyreCar Partners With Lyft On Ridesharing Rentals
Los Angeles-based startup HyreCar, a peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace, has partnered with Lyft Los Angeles, the two said today. The partnership will help potential Lyft drivers in Los Angeles, particularly those younger than 25, find short and long term ridesharing rentals. HyreCar said its peer-to-peer marketplace connects thousands of vehicle owners with potential Lyft drivers, offering up pre-certified cars for ridesharing under Lyft's vehicle requirements. HyreCar said is marketplace lets users rent cars by the day, week, or month, with rentals available for drivers 21 years old and up. Lyft said that the partnership will particularly help it capture drivers under the age of 25. Most car rental firms do not rent to drivers under the age of 25 without heavy surcharges or fees. Joe Furnari is CEO of HyreCar.
