San José Mineta International Airport Introduces Carsharing Innovation
New amenity allows locals to offer cars by the day, week, or month at SJC
San José Calif. – (January 30, 2023): Today, San José Mineta International Airport (SJC) and Turo, the world’s largest peer-to-peer car-sharing marketplace, announce the availability of vehicle exchanges from approved areas at the Airport.
The partnership means Turo hosts can share vehicles in an airport zone designated for peer-to-peer car sharing services, enabling guests to pick up a vehicle directly after arriving at the airport. The launch of this new service at SJC offers guests a selection of vehicles, including luxury and economy options with convenient drop-off and pick-up locations around the airport.
Turo drop-offs/pick-ups are available at the following SJC locations:
- Hourly Lot 2 (Terminal A Garage)
- Economy Parking Lot
- Terminal B - Stop 2 (adjacent Stop 1) - drop-off only
“In the spirit of Silicon Valley, we’re excited to be the first Bay Area airport to introduce Turo’s innovative platform,” said SJC Director John Aitken. “This partnership not only provides a creative transportation solution at the airport, but also offers an economic resource for members of our community looking to generate extra income using their vehicles.”
“This is a thrilling time for both our Turo community and the State of California,” said Turo CEO Andre Haddad. “Our new partnership with San José Mineta International Airport is a big leap toward achieving Turo’s vision of enabling anyone anywhere to find the perfect vehicle for their next adventure, while simultaneously supporting the local economy.” As Silicon Valley’s Airport, SJC embraces innovation and is known to welcome customer enhancements that also embrace it. Hosts on Turo can list their cars for booking at the time and price of their choice. Travelers simply enter their requested pick-up location, date and time, and are provided with photos and descriptions of available vehicles, along with details for booking.
