Denver Operating Area
Where to car2go
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 and travel up to 200 miles outside the Home Area
When you're done with your car2go, park anywhere in the Home Area (legally, of course)
The car2go app is the best way to see what cars are available and where in Denver.
You can't end a rental at the Denver International Airport, but there great ways to get there without having to hitch a ride or pay for parking.
A-Line Commuter Rail
The brand new, super quick commuter rail just launched in 2016. car2go Members can now park within the Home Area and at Union station, or the 38th and Blake station Park and Ride to reach the A line which will take you straight to the airport.
Park for free in Denver
car2go offers you ultimate parking freedom. To end your rental, simply park your car2go on public, on-street parking within the Denver Home Area. The best part? It costs you nothing.
Parking rules: It's pretty simple: as long as you end your trip in public, on-street parking, you're good to leave the car and go. Just be sure to check our parking rules below.
VIP parking: certain parking spots in Denver 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.

Parking spaces that are owned by a private party; such as a school, business or residence

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.
