How it Works
Using Gig is simple. Just find a car, unlock, inspect, and go. No need to return the car to the same spot. Simply leave Gig in any approved parking space in the HomeZone and boom—you’re done.
Electric Gigs must return to the Sacramento HomeZone. Hybrid Gigs can end trips in any HomeZone.
1 Sign Up
Download the app, scan your license and credit or debit card, and take a selfie. Approval takes less than five minutes. Sign up is free, but we do a $50 hold to verify funds (it drops off in a few business days).
2 Find a Car
Use the app to see available cars nearby. Book up to 30 minutes in advance, or just walk up to a car on the street. If the windshield light is green, it’s up for grabs.
4 Hit the Road
No key! Just put your foot on the brake and push the “Power” button and drive. You can go anywhere in the U.S. for as short or long as you want. Make a stopover by choosing “Stopover” to get out of the car without giving it up.
5 Park Easily
Park for free in any Gig-designated, residential, or permit‑only spots within the HomeZone. Do not park within 12-hours of street sweeping, in any no-parking zone, or in commercial or loading zones. Check out our parking rules before you go.
6 Always Affordable
Take your bike along for the ride. Every Gig car is fitted with two Thule® bike racks. They fit most bikes with a 20- to 29-inch wheel diameter and 2.6-inch tire width—no need to take off any wheels. Once bikes are on board, be careful where clearance is less than 9'.
Watch Gig's tutorial video to learn more. How to Put a Bike on the Rack.
- Grab the bike rack key from the glove box.
- Rotate the side arm all the way forward, press the grey trigger, and slide the hook all the way out.
- Put your bike in the wheel tray with front wheel touching support loop.
- Hold the bike and raise the arm near the brake or fork.
- Slide the hook down tightly against the wheel. WARNING: The arm must be firm against the tire, near the brake or fork. Give the bike a good shake to make sure it’s secure.
- Position the ratcheting strap over the rear tire and secure.
Remember, when bikes are on board, be careful when clearance is less than 9'.
