What is the MultiZone?
Hybrid Gigs from the Bay Area will be able to journey across the hills and into the Sacramento Valley, ending their trips in our State Capital. From there, they can hang out in Sac, or be taken back to the Bay Area by a different Member. We’ve basically combined our two HomeZones to create one big MultiZone!
I want in! How do I sign up?
Awesome! Bay area Gigsters enroll here.
Sacramento folks enroll here.
Can I use any Gig car?
Once you’re in the MultiZone program, starting Sunday, April 28, you will be able to use the service by driving Hybrid Gigs (blue pins on the map) between the two regions. You’ll find Hybrid Gigs in both the Bay Area and Sacramento HomeZones.
At this time, the Electric Gigs (green pins) are native to the Sacramento Valley, are not migratory, and must end their trips in the Sacramento HomeZone. But we’re working to get them comfortable ending trips in the Bay Area and we’ll let you know when they’re ready.
How much will I pay for one-way trip?
Well, it depends. It can take anywhere from 1.5 hours to two hours to drive from one HomeZone to another. At our current pricing, it might take up to $30, plus any tolls (which are billed later). In both our HomeZones, we cover street parking (meters included), and, as always, fuel and insurance.
What if I need to refuel?
Every Hybrid Gig should have a gas card in the glovebox – check for that and the fuel levels before starting your journey. When stopping for gas, give Member Support a call and they’ll give you the gas card PIN to fill up the Gig. Just a heads up, the card works at most stations, with the exception of ARCOs.
What happens if there isn’t an available Gig at the other end?
When you end your trip, someone else can grab a Gig. That’s the nature of the free-floating car share. Don’t forget you can reserve a Gig 30 minutes in advance.
Want 100% confidence? You can always keep the reservation for the whole day. Or, here are some alternative ways to get where you want to be:
- 🚊TRAIN: Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor goes right from Downtown Sacramento to the East Bay with stops in Berkeley and Oakland.
- 🚌 BUS: Greyhound and Flixbus both have direct routes from Sacramento to the Bay.
