If they’re in need of a car and don’t have the time to go to pick one up, Jersey City visitors and residents can now get on-demand cars delivered right to their door.
Kyte, the San Francisco company that brings cars to people’s doorsteps, offers on-demand car delivery to customers, effectively bypassing the inconveniences of car rental services, peer-to-peer car sharing services or traditional car leases.
It officially launches Feb. 4, allowing customers to get a car delivered on-demand for a day, week or longer, in Jersey City and surrounding areas — including Hoboken, Greenville, West Side, Journal Square, Union City, Guttenberg, Fairview, Cliffside Park, Edgewater, Historic Downtown and the Heights.
And, for a limited time, Kyte is offering a $20 discount for new customers in Jersey City. First-time users can apply promo code GARDENSTATE20 at checkout on drivekyte.com through Feb. 28.
Users can get started by choosing a specific time and location for their vehicle delivery and return through the Kyte app or website. Once booked, the company dispatches a delivery driver — known as a “Kyte Surfer” — to deliver a clean, sanitized car at the time requested. When the vehicle is ready to be returned, a Kyte Surfer retrieves the vehicle from the customer at the requested time and location.
“Adding to the success of our Brooklyn and Manhattan launches, we are looking forward to crossing the Hudson and begin offering Kyte to the people of New Jersey,” said Spencer Smith, launch manager at Kyte.
