SpotHero is partnering with Uber as it launches its peer-to-peer car sharing business, Uber Carshare, in North America. Select car owners using Uber Carshare in Boston and Toronto will get an exclusive discount on SpotHero parking. These car owners will receive a promo code to redeem their discount at select parking facilities on SpotHero’s platform. Individuals interested in taking advantage of the discount can reach out to the Uber Carshare team at firstname.lastname@example.org (U.S.) or email@example.com (CA).
In June, Uber announced plans to expand Uber Carshare operations to North America. The company launched its peer-to-peer carsharing service in Australia last year, following its acquisition of local startup Car Next Door. With this expansion of Uber Carshare to North America, Uber is aiming to bring its technology leadership to the peer-to-peer car-sharing industry.
In the past year, SpotHero has launched partnerships with several leading technology companies, including Apple Maps to expand their product offerings and integrate parking solutions into their products. We are thrilled to partner and collaborate with another leading technology platform to help customers discover and reserve parking in new ways.
The Uber Carshare offering allows customers to borrow vehicles from private car owners whenever they need them. The launch is initially focused in Boston and Toronto and Uber plans to expand the service to other cities and surrounding areas in the future.
