HyreCar, a peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace that connects vehicle owners with potential drivers, is expanding its short-term vehicle rentals, including TLC-plated cars, to drivers in New York state. 

Combining the on-demand and carsharing economies, HyreCar allows those who own vehicles to rent them out when not in use. People who want to drive for ride-hailing companies like Uber or Lyft or delivery services such as Postmates can then rent a vehicle through HyreCar's platform by the day, week, or month.

“We’re excited about opening our marketplace to the people of New York,” said Joe Furnari, CEO of HyreCar. “Our low prices, especially on TLC-plated vehicles, mean that drivers across the great state of New York will have access to far better opportunities to make money driving or delivering for the services of their choice.” 

Founded in 2014 and based in Los Angeles, the company now operates in 29 states.
