For those that don’t know RelayRides allows people to rent out their personal vehicles to individuals. To some this might sound a bit crazy, but for those follow this blog you might remember that I wrote about Relay Rides opening up the service nationally. From what Shelby Clark told me he and others enjoyed using RelayRides and it has benefited many people who don’t have easy access to cars. They are other services like ZipCar but you need to drop off and pick-up those cars at specific locations while with RelayRides a neighbor can rent you their personal vehicle.
I have not heard what Shelby Clark’s next plans are but I am sure whatever he does he will do great considering his success at RelayRides.
