Kyte, an on-demand car rental service, has launched in Philadelphia, its ninth city in operation. The service will be available in Philadelphia and surrounding areas, including Strawberry Mansion, Fishtown, Old City, Fairmount, University City, and South Philadelphia, according to the company.
With Kyte, Philadelphia customers can have a car delivered to their door for the day, week, or month. To get started, customers choose a specific time and location for their vehicle delivery and return through the Kyte app or website.
Once booked, the company dispatches a delivery driver — known as a "Kyte Surfer" — to deliver a clean, sanitized car. When the vehicle is ready to be returned, a Kyte Surfer retrieves the vehicle from the customer.
"We're thrilled to bring the Kyte experience to the City of Brotherly Love," said Spencer Smith, Kyte’s launch manager. "With the city's focus on innovation and transformation, Philadelphia is the perfect hub to bring our service."
Vehicles are parked at affordable "dark parking" lots and moved to customers when they need them, according to the company.
Kyte is offering a 15% discount for new customers in Philadelphia. First-time users can apply promo code PHILADELPHIAN at checkout on drivekyte.com until Sept. 30.
