AAA Is Planning For A Future Where We Don’t Own Cars–Starting With A Car-Share

Gig is the first service to come out of AAA’s new innovation lab, called A3 Ventures, which is dedicated to finding new ways to serve the organization’s members as transportation changes. The service aims to fill a gap in local transit options, beginning in Oakland and Berkeley. Unlike other car-sharing services in the area, it’s designed to be one-way; you don’t have to return it in the same place you pick it up. Instead, through an agreement with local government, the cars can be parked in almost any parking space in both cities.
