Want to rent your ride to a complete stranger?

RelayRides and OnStar have announced a partnership that will help owners of GM vehicles equipped with OnStar rent out their cars when the car isn't being used. RelayRides uses an app to let people who want to rent a car find a local car that is available. The car owner gets to enter the hourly rate and with the OnStar partnership, the owner doesn't even have to meet the renter to hand over keys.

OnStar is able to lock and unlock the doors for the renter allowing them into the car. It's unclear if OnStar can also start the car for the renter, but I would assume so. The GM vehicle owner does need and OnStar subscription. "General Motors, through OnStar, and RelayRides have joined forces to create an entirely new mobility solution for U.S. drivers interested in more affordable, sustainable and collaborative automobile options,” said Nick Pudar vice president OnStar Strategy and New Business Development. "Our exclusive relationship with RelayRides provides an exciting new choice: the first automobiles to run on collaborative consumption."
