Cool Idea #8: RelayRides


RelayRides is a little bit like ZipCar in that, in addition to being based in Massachusetts, it’s a network of cars that members share. The difference is that with RelayRides, members actually share. As in, RelayRides cars come from RelayRides users. They sign up, describe their cars and equip them with tracking devices, and put them on the RelayRides network.  The cool part here is that members who share their vehicles receive over half of usage fees. The startup is backed by Google and currently offers service in Boston and San Francisco. For more information, check out the first link and/or read this piece on Wired.
