Uber and Getaround have launched a pilot program in San Francisco. Through the program, Uber drivers can rent vehicles through Getaround’s peer-to-peer carsharing platform, according to a report by Uber.

With the Getaround mobile app, Uber drivers can find vehicles parked all over San Francisco. Drivers can pick up their vehicle at the designated parking spot through the app.

During the pilot, it’s a flat rate of $5 per hour for each vehicle, which includes insurance, gas, and mileage. If it’s a Uber driver’s first time using Getaround, the first day is free, says Uber.

Uber drivers can sign up to drive at uber.com/signup/drive/getaround. Once approved, the Uber driver will receive an invite code to download the Getaround app, according to Uber.
