How to Download the Pilot App

Starting August 30, all HOURCAR members will be approved for the Evie Pilot. Where anyone can download the pilot app (directions below), you will only have access to drive Evie once you are approved in the system. 

We will be running the script to approve all members on Monday, August 30th. Once you receive an email of approval, you’re good to take a trip! 

To download the pilot app, follow the directions below. It will replace your current HOURCAR app with Evie Carshare. 

Android

NOTE: Our initial pilot required users to submit Android information to be included in the pilot. Shortly after launch, we discovered that Google Play wasn’t processing all applications, leaving people without access to the pilot app. On Tuesday, August 24, we changed the settings in Google Play to authorize access to anyone who wants access. Please follow directions below to gain access to Evie Carshare on Google Play.
