Why join Upshift?
Already own a car?
The romance is over. You know that moment in a relationship where you want out, but you just don't know how to leave? That's how you feel about your car. You had some fun times, but it's long lost its spark. Dodging the meter maid and hoping the transmission doesn't blow? It's time to Upshift.
Don't own a car?
You use Uber and Lyft around town and Zipcar for your occasional IKEA run but you're tired of dealing with the rental counter experience at SFO when you want to head to Tahoe? You can get a ride at the tap of a button. Why can't you get a car for the day just as easily? Now you can.
Upshift delivery zone
In the introductory phase, Upshift will drop off a car anywhere within the outlined zone in select areas of Nob Hill, Russian Hill and Marina within an hour.
You can drop off your car anywhere in San Francisco when you're done!
We'll be expanding to more areas soon so sign up and we'll come to your 'hood next!
About Upshift: Drive the Future
There is a paradigm shift taking place in transportation. Today, you own a gas car you drive yourself for every trip. Tomorrow, you will access the "right size" mobility solution for each trip by your smartphone, it will run on new fuel sources and, eventually, it will automagically deliver itself to your door and take you wherever you want. Upshift's aim is to accelerate this trend.
Ownership → Access
"Dumb" Cars → "Smart" Vehicles
Gas → Alternative Fuels
Manual → Self-driving
Key → Smartphone
By joining Upshift, you are joining a revolution. We are starting a new movement about how we move.
Put down your keys. Pick up your smartphone. Your next car fits in your pocket. This is freedom.
"Carsharing in general comes with restrictions, Upshift does not. Upshift offers a completely unique experience than all other carsharing services. Pickup and drop off coordination is swift and dictated by the user. Their team is flexible to trip changes or varied drop off locations, always willing to meet my needs. I had a wonderful experience and will be a repeat user, without doubt."

"I've been a Zipcar member for 5 years now, and frankly this idea is light-years ahead of what's currently available in San Francisco. The benefits over hourly/daily rental are massive."
