Drive your values


We believe in using business to drive positive change in the world and never settling for what worked in the past. 

That’s why we believe everything from parking, health and safety, and quality of life can be radically improved in our cities — reducing CO2 emissions, improving our air quality, and allowing cities to transform parking spaces into more parks.

We're a smart alternative to owning a car for people who don't drive every day. In short, we’ve eliminated all the hassles of owning a car. No one wants complexity layered upon their daily life. With Upshift whenever you need a car, just send us a text and we’ll deliver you a new, clean Prius in under 1 hour. And when you come back, we’ll valet park and refuel it for you. Upshift saves you time and money so you can focus on things that matter. 


Upshift is on a mission to improve our cities
