Begin a trip with the Evie Carshare App or GoTo Card. When you arrive to the car, do a quick inspection to make sure the inside and outside are good and clean, and double check the range to make sure you have enough for your trip. Drive where you need and end your trip in an approved parking space. Pay only for the time you have the car.
Applications will be opening for Evie in September 2021. All HOURCAR members will automatically be an Evie member upon launch, and vice versa.
Joining Evie is easy. Sign up with your mobile phone or computer and we’ll process your application within 1-3 days. Some states and countries don’t allow online verification, so if you’re an out-of-state driver, look for emails in case we need additional information.
Evie trips are automatically billed by the minute, with a maximum hourly and daily discount. This means you’ll never pay more than the hourly or daily rate (not including taxes). Remember to put the car in Stopover mode to lock the vehicle when you’re not driving.

Select the car and click the “Reserve” button. The car is reserved for 15 free minutes while you walk to it. Upon your arrival, start your trip. Once the car unlocks, hop in, press the brake pedal and press the start button. No keys are needed. Put the car in gear and you’re off! For additional help, find our Tips for Trips cards located in the drivers side door pocket.
Performing a Stopover is essential for almost any trip where you have to run an errand. Stopovers lock the car while you’re not in it. To start a Stopover, select the “Pause” button and wait for the doors to lock. To end a Stopover, click the “Resume” button to continue your trip.
Park in an approved spot and gather all of your belongings. Select the “End Trip” button and wait for the doors to lock. Once the car is secure, you’re good to go! If your trip doesn’t end, make sure you’re in the Home Area and follow the tips on the app. If that doesn’t fix the problem, give us a call.
Unlock your Evie by holding your GoTo card against the GoTo reader, located on the front window on the drivers side. The card may take up to 7 seconds as it reserves the car and unlocks it for you. Once it’s unlocked, hop in and enjoy the drive! Remember to review the Tips for Trips cards, located in the drivers side door pockets, for how-to help.
Tap your GoTo card on the reader. Once the doors lock and the reader shows a yellow light, the car is in Stopover mode. When you’re ready to resume your trip, tap your GoTo card on the reader again and wait for the car to unlock.
Hold your GoTo card over the reader for up to 5 seconds. Once the car locks and the GoTo reader blinks green, you know your trip has ended and the car is ready for the next member.
Open your EvieCarshare App and select your vehicle of choice. Upon selection, you will see the proposed range available. If you don’t have the app, you can see the range available on the dashboard or by giving us a call.
Aggressive driving can dramatically decrease this range, where regenerative driving can increase the range.

If you’re out of town or need to charge up during your trip, find a Chargepoint card in the glovebox. Park at any available Chargepoint location and charge it up while you run your errands.
