General Motors' Maven Gig expanding to LA, other U.S. cities”

Maven Gig, the car-sharing service for gig economy workers owned by General Motors, is expanding to a few more cities. Apart from Los Angeles, they have already introduced these services in San Francisco and San Diego till now. Gig makes cars available for weekly rental for a flat rate, with unlimited mileage.

According to Rachael Bhattacharya, they have a strong focus on those markets where the demand for ride hailing services is high and potential of gig earnings is also high. They would also be providing drivers for the now existing ride hailing services like Uber and Lyft and other corporate companies like GrubHub and Roadie at affordable rates.

The new expansion also brings in a new official partner, HopSkipDrive, which is a ride sharing service designed for getting kids around town with additional screening processes for drivers and real-time monitoring.

Those using Maven Gig in Detroit will be able to choose between the Bolt EV, Cruze, Malibu, Impala or Trax, Rice said.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV is available for reservation with free charging at EVgo stations for a limited time.

On Thursday, Maven Gig launched in Los Angeles. "The freelance economy is growing, and Maven Gig is growing along with it to provide transportation solutions for freelance drivers".
