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).

New York City 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 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 Brooklyn and Queens.

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.

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

    Where not to park:

    • Metered parking
    • Areas with specified time restrictions
    • Temporary No Parking Zones
    • Disabled spaces (unless you’re in possession of a valid permit)
    • Taxi/Motorcycle Parking
    • Double parking (only where permitted)

    • In front of fire hydrants
    • No Standing Zones
    • Bus Stops
    • Privately owned parking lots/garages
