Imagine a rainy Friday night when you’ve got a big craving for a burrito from Anna’s Taqueria but little motivation to leave your apartment. You might be out of luck, since Anna’s doesn’t usually deliver, except that a freelance driver is available to ferry the tortilla-wrapped tube of deliciousness straight to your door in one of 12 new rental cars being rolled out by a third-party delivery company called Dashed.
The new Boston fleet, which will be complete when the final six vehicles hit the road this weekend, is an attempt by Dashed to create a Zipcar-like business for takeout delivery drivers. For $15, anyone in the company’s approved pool of couriers can book a car for an eight-hour shift.
