We've talked before about the new phenomena of peer to peer car sharing. Now a federal grant is making it more attractive to Portlanders.
Getaround, a peer to peer car sharing company is offering up to $300 to Portlanders who offer their personal cars for rental.
The Oregon Transportation and Research Consortium (OTREC) and the City of Portland partnered with Getaround on the grant to study the impacts of peer to peer car sharing on travel behavior.
Study participants will offer their personal cars or trucks for rental by other Getaround car share members. To receive the full incentive, a participant's car must be rented by five different individuals. Like all Getaround members, study participants have the final say on approving or rejecting any rental request.

Getaround is one of several car sharing companies operating in Portland, including Zipcar and Car2Go.
