Park for free in Austin

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

Parking rules: 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.

    VIP parking: certain parking spots in Austin 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). Tap the P to view the number of available parking spots.

      Where to make a stopover

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

      • Outside the car2go Austin 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.
