General Motors announced a partnership with car-sharing firm RelayRides to let owners rent their GM vehicles to others, according to a report by The Detroit News. RelayRides will connect drivers to car owners online and provide insurance to drivers during the rental period, using GM's OnStar, to give drivers a way to unlock and start a shared car via a mobile phone rather than having to arrange the drop-off and pickup of keys, according to the report.
