Rental car companies are changing their policies to decrease human interaction and touch points. Additionally, they have implemented a disinfection process in between rentals. Travelers are encouraged to take their own precautions by lowering windows and disinfecting surfaces frequently. Rideshare providers continue to operate and are expanding their services to help with goods transportation, deliveries and commute for essential travelers. Drivers are generally available based on supply/demand in their area so wait times might be longer if in a more remote location. As demand increases, they can quickly engage more drivers to meet that demand.
A full list of actions being taken by car rental rideshare providers can be found on their respective sites below.
