Getaround Board Member Karim Bousta who was CEO during 2021 will remain involved in the company and on the Board as we continue executing our ambitious growth strategy to connect safe, convenient and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work, and propel the world’s transition to a sustainable society, economy and environment.

About Getaround:

Getaround connects safe, convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work. We aim to create the world’s best carsharing marketplace with proprietary technology and data that make sharing vehicles superior to owning them.
Founded in 2009, Getaround is the world's leading carsharing platform, active in over 850 cities across 8 countries. People use Getaround to find a car nearby, which they can unlock with their phone, and drive to wherever they want for a few hours or days. The Getaround community includes owners - private and professional, including those who operate their own carsharing businesses - who share their cars on the platform, and drivers who rely on the cars provided for their on-demand mobility needs.

We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”.
