San José Mineta International Airport Introduces Additional Carsharing Option

April 4, 2024

San José Mineta International Airport (SJC) is pleased to announce a new carsharing service for travelers. Getaround, an innovative and eco-friendly peer-to-peer rental platform, is now available to provide additional transportation options for passengers traveling through SJC. This service complements the Airport’s existing carsharing offer, Turo, enhancing the variety of transportation choices for Airport travelers. 

Utilizing advanced technology, Getaround simplifies carsharing with its proprietary cloud and in-car Connect® system, facilitating a seamless, contactless rental experience. This modern approach eliminates the need for physical interactions, allowing travelers to bypass traditional rental processes and it is accessible in over 1,000 cities across Europe and the United States.

“Thanks to Getaround, tourists coming to visit the Capital of Silicon Valley will see our innovative spirit as soon as they step off the plane,” said Mayor Matt Mahan. “It’s great to see our award-winning Airport embrace a new peer-to-peer transportation model that gets our visitors where they need to go and gets our residents renting their vehicles a nice check.”

“SJC continues to transform the travel experience for passengers by partnering with companies to provide more sustainable and affordable options. This new carsharing option is just another reason SJC is known for their simple and convenient way to travel,” said Jennifer Maguire, San José City Manager.

The partnership between SJC and Getaround means that owners can easily share their vehicles and guests can conveniently access cars upon arrival in a designated airport zone for peer-to-peer carsharing services.

Carsharing drop-offs/pick-ups are available at the following SJC locations:
• Economy Lot 1
• Hourly Lot 2 (Terminal A Garage)
• Hourly Lot 4 
• Hourly & Daily Lot 5
• Terminal B - Stop 2 (for in-person vehicle exchanges only)

"Carsharing is becoming increasingly popular and we're pleased to support this trend,” said SJC Director of Aviation Mookie Patel. “This is an efficient and sustainable transportation alternative that also provides an opportunity for our community members to earn additional income from sharing their vehicles."

"In the spirit of embracing innovation in the heart of Silicon Valley, we are excited to be a carshare partner at SJC and supply instant access to on-demand and affordable cars, providing a seamless user experience for travelers," said Eduardo Iniguez, CEO of Getaround. "We look forward to expanding carshare for our traveler customers as we continue our mission to make carsharing accessible and convenient for everyone, everywhere."
