American Lease was one of the first companies to partner with Uber starting in 2014. ALM and Uber have grown the fleet from 0 to thousands of vehicles helping thousands more drivers get on the road. We started our business as a leasing company but quickly started building our rental business to meet customer demand for flexibility. Today we continue to innovate through the launch of our app, providing wheelchair accessible vehicles, and we will continue to add new driver friendly products.
We began our partnership with Via in 2017 and have played a significant role in their growth in NYC. We focus on the Mercedes Metris but can rent or lease any car for use on the Via platform. With Via drivers can choose their “Blue” program for guaranteed hourly earnings or choose to log on and off the platform at their own pace. Via is a leader in shared rides and ALM plans to continue to support Via's goals in that category.
