On-demand, app-based car rental company Kyte is launching another location, this time bringing its service to Brooklyn, N.Y. The service that delivers cars to people's doors also launched in Manhattan just four months ago in May. The Brooklyn offering begins Friday, Oct. 1.
The service will now be available to Brooklynites in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Heights, Bushwick, Carroll Gardens, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, Fort Greene, Greenpoint, Ocean Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Red Hook, Weeksville, Williamsburg, and Windsor Terrace.
“After our successful Manhattan launch in May, we’ve been looking forward to the day more New Yorkers can drive Kyte,” said Spencer Smith, launch manager at Kyte. “With the city’s commitment to efficient, sustainable transportation, Brooklyn is the perfect place to expand our network to help people get cars easier.”
Along with the Brooklyn expansion news, Kyte also launched a redesign of its iOS booking experience, implementing a new design system across all platforms. New features include optimized in-app support chat, dark mode capability, service area maps, and improved live notification updates. Kyte will launch on Android soon.
Kyte offers on-demand cars delivered to customers for as long as they need them — bypassing sometimes long in-person lines and paperwork and other concerns that can come with traditional car leases.
Kyte is offering a 15% discount for new customers in Brooklyn. First-time users can apply promo code “HELLOBROOKLYN” at checkout on drivekyte.com until 10/31.
Kyte’s expansion to Brooklyn marks the company’s 10th major U.S. city launch.
