Car2Go launches in Portland

1 Comment

On Saturday night, Car2Go - a pay by the minute car share company from Daimler Trucks North America, officially launched their service in Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Along with the classic car share company Zipcar and peer to peer car sharing via Getaround, Car2Go's launch provides Portlanders with three distinct car sharing services.

Car2Go's service allows one-way car sharing trips for 35 cents per minute. The maximum rate per hour is $12.99 and the maximum daily rate is $65.99.

Similar to other car share companies, Car2Go requires you to be a member to use their vehicles. You can reserve a car online or go to any available car on their map and swipe your membership card to begin the rental.

Cars can be parked on any public street in the parking lane, including metered parking within the Car2Go "home area." The only exceptions are restricted spaces (e.g., valet, loading zone) or spaces restricted to parking for less than an hour.

Autoblog reports that in San Diego, members logged 25,000 Car2Go trips in the first 100 days.

Not sure I approve of having the car2go car parked right in front of my house. How do I get it moved to sweep the leaves, etc.?
