Occasional drivers who want to forego the expense and hassle of owning a personal vehicle may now have a new option for renting a car, as AAA unveils Gig, an app-based car sharing service.

To use the service, drivers simply pull up the app and find a nearby car to rent at the price of $2.50 per mile, $15 per hour or $85 per day. Returning the vehicle is simpler than driving it to a particular location (a requirement for many similar services, like Zipcar)—instead, users can drop the car off at any metered parking spot or public parking lot.

Gig has been rolled out in Oakland and Berkeley, California, and the company hopes to expand to San Francisco.
