AAA’s Gig Car Share is expanding its one-way car sharing to San Francisco International Airport starting Wednesday, the company said this week.
Travelers heading in and out of SFO this week will be able to park and book cars in Gig's designated Park N Fly spaces. Gig also has five reserved spaces and overflow room at Oakland International Airport. Drivers don't have to pay extra for parking.
"Everyone is guaranteed a spot," said Michael Blasky, spokesperson for AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah.
Walnut Creek-based Gig launched in April as part of AAA NCNU's innovation arm, A3 Ventures, based in Oakland. It operates a fleet of 250 Toyota Priuses available to users for one-way trips in Berkeley and Oakland.
The service is one of several car-sharing companies that have been slow to gain traction in the Bay Area. Last year, San Francisco's first car-share company, City CarShare, ended up handing over its 50,000 members and parking spaces to Getaround after struggling for years. These services continue competing in a market of riders also relying on growing ride-sharing options like Uber, Lyft and Chariot.
