Evercar, a provider of shared electric vehicles for on-demand drivers like Uber and Lyft, has ended its operations in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

All member accounts have been suspended. According to the company’s website, it will be processing any remaining invoices by Thursday Oct. 13.

“Over the past year, our team has worked hard to deliver you a reliable service to help you earn money in the on-demand economy,” Evercar stated on its website. “However, due to unforeseen circumstances, we will not be able to deliver that service in the near term.”

Evercar’s shared vehicles were preapproved for ride-hailing and on-demand delivery platforms including Uber, Lyft, Postmates, and DoorDash. Its $8 hourly rate covers fuel, maintenance, and insurance costs for unlimited miles.

Launched in Los Angeles, Evercar offered access to over 100 shared vehicles in 13 vehicle hubs around Los Angeles County. The company had recently expanded to the Bay Area — offering Toyota Prius vehicles with two locations in San Francisco and Oakland.
