GM's newest car share platform Maven is designed with the future of self-driving cars in mind. The service will provide drivers without vehicle ownership the chance to unlock and start vehicles for a fee, with an attempt to move into autonomous driving as the vehicles become more popular in the years to come.
Vehicle ownership is gradually shifting as car sharing becomes a more affordable solution. Currently Maven offers free registration and hourly car rentals for as low as $6 an hour all-inclusive. With more and more autonomous vehicles entering the markets, Maven will offer a ride hailing service that will leverage self-driving vehicles to riders. The service will be built along a networking of users that are pre-arranged by location as well as travel preferences.
