The map and the app shows you where cars are available right now

The blue border outlines our Home Area - think of it as our operating area, where car2gos live. Cars can move around and park freely inside the border, but trips can't be ended outside the border (except at special car2go-dedicated Parkspots, indicated on the map).

Austin Operating Area

What's a Home Area? Think of it as our operating area, where our cars free-float around the city. You can only pick up and drop off vehicles within this area and designated spots outside of it, but everything in between is up to you.

It's simple enough:

  • You can grab a car from anywhere in the Home Area
  • You can leave the Home Area during your trip
  • When you're done with your car2go, park anywhere in the Home Area (legally, of course - find parking rules here)

The car2go app is the best way to see which cars are available and where they’re located in Austin.

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 park

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

      City of Austin metered spaces within the Home Area that have time limits of 2 hours or more

      On-street non-metered spaces within the Home Area that have time limits of 2 hours or more or no limit

      Designated car2go Parkspots

      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.

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

      Where not to park:

      • Areas with specified time restrictions
      • Residential Only/Permit Spaces
      • In front of fire hydrants
      • Bus Stops
      • Temporary No Parking Zones

      • "Car Sharing Only" parking spots
      • Disabled spaces (unless you have a valid permit displayed in the car)
      • Privately owned parking lots/garages
      • Spots designated for specific vehicles
