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.

Outside the car2go Portland 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.
