Carsharing at Atlas: A New Way to "Getaround"

“Getaround’s mission is to connect safe, convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work. Getaround’s partnership with Atlas and Carmel Partners provides an amenity which contributes to sustainability as a greener alternative to car ownership” - Kevin Tang, Getaround’s Manager, Real Estate Partnerships.

While the 12th Street BART Station is just also a half a block from our front door at Atlas, sometimes you just need a dedicated vehicle to get where you need to go. Car-sharing remains one of the most convenient—and sustainable—ways for Bay Area residents to quickly access a car or truck.

For residents at Atlas in downtown Oakland, car-sharing just got even more convenient through our new partnership with Getaround®, the world’s leading digital carsharing marketplace. Residents can choose from three cars in the building’s parking garage and book them by the hour or day using the Getaround app.

“Adding Getaround to Atlas fits well with Carmel Partners’ culture of improving the cities and neighborhoods in which we operate. Having Getaround vehicles on-site benefits our residents by providing a greener alternative to private car ownership, decreasing the need for parking, and adding to the desirability of our communities” - Dan Garibaldi, Managing Partner at Carmel Partners.

Powered by Getaround Connect®, the proprietary digital car technology, Getaround creates a safer, convenient car-sharing experience that enables residents at Atlas luxury apartments to book a car 24/7 without the need to meet anyone, carry an access card, or coordinate picking up a car key. We are thrilled to be able to partner with Getaroound to reduce congestion in crowded parking garages, and above all, provide our residents with a super convenient, green, and cost-effective alternative to car ownership.

Carmel Partners and Getaround are exploring the opportunity to scale this partnership to our other properties across the country, providing on-site car share vehicles for residents and local communities.
