    GIG Car Share lets you use a car, granted you’re in a supported city

    • Pleasant, clean, and polished intuitive UI
    • May rival Uber
    • Doesn't support a lot of cities
    • Confusing and unclear pricing
    • Costly

    "Use a car"


    Looking to get a nearby car? Say hello to GIG Car Share. Available for the Android and iOS, GIG Car Share lets you find nearby cars that are available for you to use, granted you’re in a supporting city. To get started, simply enable your GPS. In supported cities, GIG will locate nearby cars for you to use. Don’t worry about having enough gas or insurance, as GIG promises to take care of the logistics. Simply book your car, pay up per mile and minute parked, and start using it for as long as you’d like.


    Don’t expect to have a difficult time getting up and running with GIG, as it sports a solid user interface that’s quite easy to use in a cinch, even rivaling Uber.


    Don’t expect this app to support a lot of cities yet as it only brings support for Oakland and Berkeley, so there’s not much really that you can do here, other than wait. Also, expect a very confusing service in regards to its exact pricing and costly if you park.

    Customer support is the best. Make sure that you park in a place with t-mobile service however, as it requires service to start.

    Aweme car share app for the oakland/berkley area. Only pay for what you use. So easy for small shopping trips. It's so much cheaper than renting a car.

    Great concept and worked well! Minor issue that ending the ride left and infinite loading symbol and I just exited out of the app and it was fine. Also it wouldn't let me lock the car which I realized after some trial and error was because one of the windows was a centimeter not up. Perhaps including some tips in the error message as to why the car isn't locking would be helpful. Also app would always error when trying to enter my address.
