The Wall Street Journal: Uber teams with GM’s Maven to rent cars to drivers

Uber Technologies Inc. will allow its drivers in San Francisco to rent vehicles using General Motors Co.’s Maven car-sharing service as part of a test.

The partnership, announced Tuesday, is unexpected because GM GM, -0.38% is one of the biggest shareholders in Uber rival Lyft Inc., after investing $500 million into the ride-sharing service earlier this year.

The new arrangement will give Uber drivers access to a weekly rental rate of $179 plus taxes and fees for vehicles through Maven. It is a 90-day test between the two companies.
