GM’s Maven Gig service has expanded to San Francisco. Maven Gig drivers are provided access to vehicles they can use for independent gigs, such as package delivery, food or grocery delivery, and ride sharing.

The program has been live in San Diego since May. So far, Maven Gig Bolt electric vehicles have driven nearly 20,000 miles in San Diego, according to the company. The service plans to launch in Los Angeles later this year.

For the Gig service, Maven has partnered with GrubHub, Instacart, Roadie, and ride-sharing services.

“Freelancers in the sharing economy want flexibility, and Maven Gig is a seamless way to maximize opportunities,” said Rachel Bhattacharya, director of Maven’s commercial mobility strategy. “If the driver has a lull on one service, they can easily flip to another and keep hustling.”

Maven Gig members can reserve a Chevrolet Bolt EV for $229 per week plus taxes, which includes insurance, maintenance, unlimited miles, and free charging at EVGo stations for a limited time.

In San Francisco, members can also reserve the Chevrolet Cruze ($189 per week), Chevrolet Malibu ($199 per week), and Chevrolet Trax ($209 per week).
