So many changes…where to begin.
KINTO Share launched in November 2019 with carshare for delivery and rideshare. With our 1st anniversary quickly approaching, we can say we sure have been busy. We have always strived to keep our lines of communication open with you, our customers, to engage and really listen to your feedback and take appropriate action and offer programs that make both your personal and professional lives easier.
Recently, we launched some new offerings and updated some of our current programs. Here is a breakdown of all those updates:
We have expanded our hourly car rental services to offer weekly KINTO Share rentals for Uber and delivery drivers.* The introductory rate is $215 (plus tax) per week, with unlimited mileage and one optional extension (14-day maximum rental period). We offer a hybrid exclusive fleet consisting of the reliable Toyota Prius, Camry Hybrid, and RAV4 Hybrid models. Insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and 24/7 customer support are included. No security deposit is required; you will simply be charged in full for the rental at the time of your reservation. Now you’ll no longer need to go back and forth to pick up vehicles when you want to drive for Uber or delivery. You will have the hybrid to start your shift at your convenience.
For Uber drivers, our hybrid fleet is Uber Green eligible.** Eligible drivers of low-emission vehicles automatically get $0.50 extra directly from riders in each Uber Green trip.
Weekly rentals are available at our Norwalk location, and we are working to add new locations for your convenience.
We understand how important the cleanliness of our vehicles is to customers, so we introduced KINTO Clean with our weekly program. This includes our 15-step cleaning process and door seal, reassuring you that your vehicle rental has been properly sanitized to follow CDC recommendations.
Hourly Flat Rate Structure
We launched KINTO Share based on an hourly rental period, as well as mileage used. However, we have received feedback that the mileage charges can be confusing, and sometimes rideshare drop-offs are further from home, forcing drivers to accumulate more miles to get back to their ideal area of service.
We’ve taken all of that into consideration and we launched a new hourly rate structure. Customers will only be charged a flat hourly rate of $5.50 per hour with unlimited miles. This gives you the flexibility to earn without the concerns of mileage costs. You will able to reserve the vehicle for up to 72 hours, which is an increase from our previous 14-hour policy.
We now offer customers a new hourly alternative to traditional car rental services! The hourly rate is $5.50 per hour with unlimited mileage. This allows customers, who simply want to run quick errands or drive around town, the opportunity to rent cars from one of our convenient locations, at an affordable price.
*Weekly rental services are not available for Lyft drivers and other rideshare drivers other than Uber.
**Driving with Uber Green is available in select cities and in busy areas from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Please check the Uber Driver app for more information on availability and offer restrictions.
