Maven Gig Launches In San Francisco

The Maven Gig carsharing service, aimed at those working in the freelance “gig” economy as delivery drivers or on-demand taxi service drivers, has now launched in San Francisco, California.

The Maven Gig carsharing service, aimed at those working in the freelance “gig” economy as delivery drivers or on-demand taxi service drivers, has now launched in San Francisco, California.

This launch follows on an earlier launch in the San Diego area, and a launch in Los Angeles is now slated for later in 2017.

As part of the launch in San Francisco, Maven Gig has partnered with Instacart, GrubHub, Roadie, and others — to make it easier for those without a vehicle to work in the on-demand driver sector.

Notably, the San Fran’s Maven Gig service fleet includes Chevy Bolt EVs — which apparently come with free charging at EVgo electric vehicle charging stations. Other than Chevy Bolt EVs, the service fleet also includes the Chevy Malibu, the Chevy Cruze, and the Chevy Trax.

A press release provides some further information: “Gig drivers typically drive for more than one app throughout the day; Maven Gig is platform agnostic to allow drivers to switch between several brands, services and gigs. Maven Gig members can reserve a Chevrolet Bolt EV for $229 per week plus taxes, which includes insurance (minus deductibles), maintenance, unlimited miles and free charging at EVGo stations for a limited time. …

“Additional vehicles, including the Chevrolet Cruze ($189 per week plus taxes), Malibu ($199 per week plus taxes) and Trax ($209 per week plus taxes), can be reserved in San Francisco. Maven continues to experiment and will adjust offerings based on the gig economy and driver needs.”

Notably, the San Diego Maven Gig service — which launched only just in May — is already fully subscribed.
