Where to car2go

car2go new york home 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.

Within the car2go Home Area, you can:

  • 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)

Thinking of a longer trip outside the Home Area? That's cool with us as long as you keep a few things in mind. Trips may only start and end within the same Home Area. You may travel up to a maximum of 200 miles outside the Home Area. Trips may not exceed 24 hours unless you've selected a package of a longer duration. Other terms and conditions apply.

New Parkspot at Industry City

Skip the dreaded parking search when heading to Industry City. We’ve added dedicated parking at Industry City in Lot C. Here’s how it works:

  • Enter from 2nd Avenue between 32nd and 37th Avenue. You’ll see a parking “P” icon on the car2go app
  • Pull a barcode ticket
  • When you exit, hit the call button and let the lot teller know you’re in a car2go
  • Smart cars should be parked two per space, Mercedes vehicles one per space

Whether you’re grabbing dinner with friends or refreshing your wardrobe, getting to the Industry City has never been so convenient.

If parking is full, please end your trip on street as you normally would within car2go parking guidelines.

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, do not park within 12 hours of the scheduled cleaning.

    On streets with 1- or 2-day-a-week street sweeping, do not park within 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 not to park

    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.
