Another thing you should know...

Check their website to find them!

Car rental concept has been changing a lot in the past few years coping with new economical and environmental constraints, and adapting itself to them. Which leads to short term (even very short term) rental that arose and throve.





Based on a very simple and basic idea... Why should we bother (and meanwhile spend money accordingly) having a car while we only need it from time to time?


City Car Share

City CarShare is a nonprofit organization that launched car sharing in the San Francisco Bay area in 2001. There are cars available for hourly use at all times of day. Members pay a membership fee and usage charges based on amount of time used, distance driven, time of day, and vehicle type. City car share fleet includes Hybrid vehicles (like Toyota Prius), Smart Cars, Subarus, Mini Coopers,  even pick up trucks, wheelchai accessible vans... They have been selected for fuel efficiency with low emissions ratings.


Membership does include maintenance, gas and insurance. Becoming a member, you get an electronic key giving access to all the vehicles of the fleet. In the end, you just have to bring the car back to its initial spot.


Vehicles are parked on their PODs (point of departure), that you can easily check an find on the company website.

Consult rates and plans.




Hard to compare them. At the first sight, rates seem a bit more expensive, but both offers look quite alike.

The fleet is possibly wider (officially 70 models) with some kind of "luxury" cars. Each vehicle has got a "home location" (street spot, driveway or a public parking) easy to find on their website.

How does it work? Quite funny short movie to know everything about the way it works.

Check the rates





Club Sportiva

Lamborghini, Ferrari & co... Top luxury cars. System based on a membership to get access to those little jewels.

Their website


City Rent a Car

Not only outstanding cars. However, they put forward their luxury models. Call them "exotic cars", exotic as in fancy and trendy.

You will have to give a call to get rates for the most "exotic" cars.

To give you a hint... a Mini Cooper is around 80$ a day.

Buzz Rentals

Used to rent Vespas, but there have been Insurance issues in California. Once fixed, they'll get back to the business.

Also offer Smart cars. Another category, but why not?

Dubbelju Motorcycles Rentals

Very good reputation. On Bryant Street. It's all about motorcycles... which means you'll find Harleys.

Their website



Motos, scooters, Crosscountry (aka dirty bikes) and Quads.

Multilingual website. They are doing business all over the world or something like that. So, indulge yourself here in SF or anywhere else.

Spyder rentals

Located in Alameda (on the other side of the Bay Bridge).

(877) 518 1444

Check their website.


Thunder Road Motorsports

SF address has been shut down as a consequence to the economic crisis...

US motorcycle rentals went on with the business. But it is now located in Concord. May be of great interest for passionate people.

To get an idea regarding rates and prices, you'd better call and tell your specific expectations.

Companies look quite alike and offer the same kind of services.

Their addresses are displayed here and in the Taxis category as well, considering that they almost always offer an airport shuttle service. Most of the time, they also offer Napa Valley and Wine country tours.
