    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.

    Gig is one-way car sharing. Get $15 off your first trip with promo code TRYGIG. It’s easy to sign up for $0 in 5 minutes. Find a nearby car, unlock with your phone, get in, and go!

    One-way means you can pick up a car in one location and drop it off just about anywhere in the Oakland, Berkeley and Albany HomeZone*.

    Gig is wheels for whatever, whenever. How it works:

    • $0 membership fee – only pay for what you use, by the mile, hour, or day.
    • One-way trips – take a Gig from one place and drop it off in another.
    • Flexible – no reservation needed. Take a car for as long or as little as you like.
    • Drive yourself and save – you’re in control of the road, route and radio. No surge pricing.
    • The whole package – parking in the HomeZone*, gas, insurance**, and roadside assistance included.
    • Bring your bike – every Gig is a Toyota Prius C Hybrid with a bike rack.
    • Refer friends - you both get $15 credit when they take their first trip.

    Get in. Go!
