LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HyreCar Inc. (NASDAQ: HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and delivery, today announced that HyreCar is on pace to exceed One Million rental days in 2020.
“As the economy starts to show signs of recovery, it is important that we move quickly to address the need for our rideshare and delivery drivers. Demand for vehicles in the South and Southwest states have been outpacing other larger states still recovering from COVID. This is resulting in more demand for vehicles in these specific states. One million rental days has always been one important target for this company and to be on track for this in 2020 is a positive sign for us,” said Joe Furnari, CEO, of HyreCar.
HyreCar surveys show that driver demand for rideshare and delivery continue to rebound in the Southwest faster than any other region of the US. Based on internal data, delivery services continue to be the largest use of vehicles with rideshare still growing but at a slower pace. Drivers are primarily using delivery services such as Postmates, Grubhub and UberEats for 70% of the time while in a rental. Interest in gig-economy vehicle rentals surged in July as over 20,000 + leads were captured on HyreCar’s website and mobile APP. Utilization for our vehicle partnerships continues to trend higher for most of HyreCar’s dealerships and car supply partners.
- Close to 57% of HyreCar’s driver base is extending the rental beyond the initial rental terms
- Over 42% of HyreCar drivers are driving over 40+ hours a week for Gig
- Most drivers are driving for more than 3+ rideshare or delivery companies per week
