Gig Car Share has increased the size of the HomeZone from 15 to 23 square miles, expanding service to portions of Columbia City, Madrona, Greenlake, and North Seattle. Additionally, Gig will begin to release 120 brand new Gigs throughout the Seattle area starting today.
Members are expected to surpass one million miles of driving in the Seattle area by the end of 2020.
“We’re humbled by the support from our members and the Seattle community,” Jason Haight, president of GIG Car Share, said in a statement. "We are continually adapting to meet the needs of the communities we serve while maintaining our commitment to providing a more convenient, affordable, and safe mobility option."
Additionally, Gig4Good, a program that offers driving credits to Gig Car Share community partners, has been recognized by AutoTech Breakthrough Awards as Sharing Service of the Year.
“AAA Washington congratulates our partner Gig on being named the Car Sharing Service of the Year and for approaching the one million miles driven milestone," Kirk Nelson, President/CEO of AAA Washington, said in a statement. "With the expansion of its fleet and HomeZone, GIG Car Share will continue to shape Seattle's transportation landscape.”
