Redefining car ownership for urban living (invest at republic.co/upshift)

Upshift is an easy alternative to leasing a car for people who don't drive much (<10,000 miles/year). Save time and money with our transparent subscriptions that include everything you need like full coverage insurance, maintenance, and roadside assistance. Whenever you need a car, we deliver a new clean Prius with a full tank of gas. Return anywhere in the city - we’ll park and refuel for you. Plans based on how often you drive, targeting people who need a car around 1-3x/week. You drive – leave the rest to us. We are funded in part by MINI (BMW).
