HyreCar is partnering with Midway Car Rental.

HyreCar's platform will increase use of Midway's inventory to take advantage of growing opportunities in commercial vehicle rentals.

Midway Rental Car is the largest privately held rental car agency in Los Angeles and a part of the Hankey Group, with eight rental locations in Southern California. The Hankey Group's interests include automotive, financial, technology, insurance, and real-estate enterprises and holds more than US$9.5bn in assets.

"We have seen substantial growth in interest from rental agencies that are considering HyreCar's platform to increase fleet utilisation," said HyreCar CEO, Joe Furnari.

"We believe significant opportunities will continue for vehicle rentals from food and package delivery drivers. For HyreCar, this will be incremental business as rideshare continues to recover."

For his part, Midway Auto president, Brett Lippel added: "This partnership exemplifies our focus to provide transportation solutions for almost any need at Midway. Our initial pilot programme has proven successful with HyreCar and we intend to dedicate a larger portion of our inventory to meet the demand for Southern California."

"Another benefit of the HyreCar partnership is Midway can leverage the Hankey Group of companies to benefit from vehicle sales and financing for vehicle renters that eventually wish to become vehicle owners."
