Drive Your Values


We need to rethink the way we move.

If you don’t have a car...

You waste valuable time renting a car to go out of the city. Stand in line at downtown or airport rental counters and get hit with gas refueling charges and steep insurance costs. Or scroll through hundreds of cars on carshare platforms and never know what car is available and if it’s clean, gassed up, or what you will pay.

If you have a car...

You are circling the block every week to avoid street sweeping tickets on a car you rarely use. Buying a new car you hardly drive is crazy, so you have an older car that barely runs, gets terrible gas mileage, and doesn’t have the latest safety features let alone bluetooth. But you have good memories with it and you already paid it off...

It’s time to Upshift.

Upshift makes it easier to go wherever you want with fewer resources. We are getting rid of all the cars clogging our streets by sharing, reducing greenhouse gas emissions with new Priuses, and eliminating serious traffic injuries by incorporating the latest safety technologies. Let’s go!

We have eliminated CO2 emissions equal to taking 7+ cars off the road for a year!
