RelayRides Neighbor-to-Neighbor Car Sharing Expands its San Francisco Service Into the Richmond District

SAN FRANCISCO -  RelayRides (www.relayrides.com) launches in the Richmond District neighborhood of San Francisco. The latest RelayRides expansion connects even more motorists interested in loaning their cars to neighbors looking for inexpensive access to a vehicle.

RelayRides lets owners make money by lending their idle autos to motorists, who now have a less-expensive alternative to other carsharing or car-renting services - right in their own neighborhood. A RelayRides car generates an average of $250 per month when lent to neighbors. By using pre-existing cars, the service that launched last year in Cambridge, Mass., and San Francisco is more eco-friendly than those of competitors that put new cars on the road. The company backs its service with a $1M insurance policy and features proprietary, best-in-class technology for a convenient, secure and smooth exchange.

"Peer-to-peer carsharing is really taking off as it becomes available in even more neighborhoods," said Shelby Clark, founder and Chief Community Officer of RelayRides. "As we connect more car owners with drivers in need of transportation, it's becoming abundantly clear: no matter where you are, the combination of convenience, affordability and security is making neighbor-to-neighbor carsharing a hit."
