Introducing New Form of Car Share at DEN


Avail Provides Transportation Alternative to Travelers Visiting the Mile High City

DENVER – June 1, 2020 – Denver International Airport (DEN) has launched a year-long pilot program with Avail Car Share to give passengers an alternate way to get to their destinations across the state. DEN is the first major U.S. airport to establish this type of car-sharing pilot program.

“It’s important to us to embrace our changing world and to adapt to new, innovative ways to enhance the travel experience,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “We look forward to working with Avail over the course of the pilot to learn more about their business and ways to better serve our passengers.”

Avail is a car-sharing service that connects car owners with travelers looking to borrow a car. Avail staff examines motor vehicle records of drivers, conducts safety inspections and disinfects vehicles with high-grade, multi-purpose cleaners prior to each use. With insurance protection and roadside assistance coverage, both provided by Allstate, drivers can rest assured they’re getting an affordable and reliable vehicle.

“Expanding our partnership with DEN is an excellent opportunity to enhance the airport experience by providing a variety of transportation options for visitors while creating additional income for Denver residents,” said Avail CEO Mike Osborn. “Transportation needs vary, which is why we’re offering a safe and convenient alternative to car rental and ride sharing, with high-touch customer service, at a great value.”

Car owners can schedule to share a car and travelers can book to borrow a car at Avail is located at 18000 E. 81st Ave. and is only a short shuttle ride to and from the airport.

A peer-to-peer motor vehicle sharing law, SB19-090, was passed in 2019. The act requires the car sharing program to enter into a concession agreement with the airport. Avail will pay DEN a concession fee and rent 10 onsite parking spaces.
