Car2Go Offers Portland a Different Car Sharing Experience

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

Car2Go side shotCar2Go's brand of car sharing is unique in several important -- and very cool -- ways. It's pay by the minute, members can use a vehicle for one-way trips, and there are no designated parking spots -- simply park the Smart Car anywhere within the Car2Go "home area," which includes central Portland.

When you want a car, you can either find one via a smart phone app or computer, or walk up to one on the street that's available, swipe your member card, and off you go.

While it's not a do-it-all transportation solution, Car2Go offers a very important tool to Portlanders' get-around arsenal. Read more about my experience with Car2Go in my full-fledged review.
