Where to car2go

car2go calgary home area

What’s the car2go Home Area? Think of it as our operating area, where our cars float freely around Calgary. Here you can grab any available car2go and leave it in any public, non-metered street parking space or dedicated car2go-only spots when you're done. The best part is? Parking costs you nothing.

It's simple enough:

  • Find car2go vehicles near you
  • You can leave the Home Area during your trip and travel up to 300 km outside the Home Area
  • Park in residential permit parking areas (legally, of course)

The car2go app is the best way to see what cars are available and where in Calgary.

Park for free in Calgary

car2go offers you ultimate parking freedom. To end your rental simply park your car2go on public, on-street parking within the Calgary Home Area. The best part? It costs you nothing.

Where to park: It's pretty simple: as long as you end your trip in any approved public, on-street parking space, you're good to leave the car and go. Just be sure to check our parking rules below for where you can and can't park.

    VIP parking: certain parking spots in Calgary are reserved just for car2go members. Look for blue Ps on the app- the number indicates available cars (lighter blue Ps means there are no available cars there).

      Where you can park

      Unless further restrictions are present, you may park in*:

      Tip: Save your change – we cover the cost of meters!

      2+ hour on-street zones in non-commuter lanes

      Residential on-street parking including permit-only zones within the Home Area

      Unrestricted on-street spaces within the Home Area

      *Further restrictions include: No parking or stopping zones, on-street spaces where parking restrictions will apply in the future, etc. Since you never know when another car2go member will use the car next, a trip should never be ended in a further restricted parking space regardless of when the restriction begins or ends. See 'Where you can't park' below for more info.

      Where to make a stopover

      Stopover mode lets you run inside for an errand without giving up the car.

      • Outside the car2go Calgary Home Area
      • Parking spaces that are owned by a private party; such as a school, business or residence
      • Parking garages, lots, or other facilities

      Tip: We cover the cost of meters, but if during a stopover you park somewhere that requires payment, the cost is on you.

      Where to avoid

      Steer clear of illegal parking spots or you may be held responsible for a parking ticket, vehicle relocation or worse - the dreaded tow.

      Tip: When ending your car2go trip, a good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you would leave your personal car there.

      And remember– trips can only be ended/completed within the Home Area.

      We’re not above the law, be sure to take a look at your city’s parking rules here.
