Maven Gig is now available in New York City, giving drivers a flexible way to apply to work for any eligible rideshare and delivery services. Pick from a variety of makes and models, and take advantage of Uber Instant Pay.
With Maven Gig there’s no long-term commitment, drivers can rent a car for as few as 7 days and pay weekly. While there is a pre-authorization of $250 put toward your first payment when a reservation is made, there is no security deposit.
Some of the cars available in NYC include cars and SUVs like the Chevrolet Cruze, Malibu, Equinox, and Traverse. The Equinox is particularly popular because of its interior roominess for the driver and passengers, including its large trunk space for airport transfers. Available vehicles can be viewed directly in the Maven app. Prices start as low as $321 a week, including taxes and fees. Vehicles include:
Compact sedan like the Chevrolet Cruze: $321 a week
Mid-size sedan like the Chevrolet Malibu: $344 a week
