Car Rental Converges With Mobility

For my latest post on, I interviewed Avis Budget Group Vice President Jeff Kaelin. Our conversation struck me for how much the rental car industry is converging with the broader mobility space.

When I think of mobility, I think of Uber and Waymo and Ford, my old employer. But Avis very much considers themselves a mobility company.

Kaelin boils it down to, “We provide solutions to get from Point A to Point B.”

And also this:

“Future mobility will be connected, integrated, and on-demand. Connected cars put us in a strong position to provide those services,” Kaelin envisions.

I love self-driving cars and I work on them at Cruise!
