Cars will come through car-booking service Getaround, which lets private auto owners rent their cars out to others.

The ride-hailing app company launched four new initiatives at an event in Washington, DC, and also discussed its acquisition of dockless electric bike-sharing company Jump, announced earlier this week. People will be able to reserve these cars through their Uber app. San Francisco is the first city to get the new feature, which goes live in April, says Uber's CEO Dara Khosrowshahi.

"Having a greater variety of transportation modes at your fingertips helps make it increasingly easy to live without a vehicle", said Dara Khosrowshahi, the CEO of Uber.
