Parking in NYC

car2go offers you ultimate parking freedom. To end your rental, simply park your car2go on public, non-metered, on-street parking within the New York 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.

    Where to park

    Any legal on-street parking spot within the Home Area.

    On streets with 4-day-a-week street sweeping, avoid parking within 12 hours of the scheduled cleaning.

    On streets with 1- or 2-day-a-week street sweeping, avoid parking 24 hours prior to the scheduled cleaning.

    Where to make a stopover

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

    • Outside the car2go New York 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: 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.
