Why Upshift?

Stop wasting time circling for parking, pumping gas, or renting different cars.

Always drive a new Prius that gets 54 MPG, drives great with plenty of power and storage space, and has the latest safety tech.

Feel Good – improve our cities and the environment, eliminate serious traffic accidents, and get more freedom than owning a car.

It was so nice to have a car for the day and Upshift made it so easy. Ezra and everyone we worked with were so nice and we could tell that they are willing to bend over backwards for their customers.

We deliver and pick up between 8am–8pm daily within our San Francisco service zone. Book in advance or with at least one hour notice.

Concierge drop-off and pick-up plus no refueling means I don’t need to add another hour to my trip - key if you need a car to jam down to the Peninsula for meeting.
