Park for free in D.C.

car2go offers you ultimate parking freedom. To end your rental simply park your car2go in any approved public, on-street parking within the D.C. Home Area. The best part? It costs you nothing.

Parking rules: It's pretty simple: as long as you end your trip in any approved public, on-street parking space, you're good to leave the car and go. Just be sure to check our parking rules below.

    Where to park

    Tip: Save your change – we cover the cost of meters!

    Unrestricted on-street metered spaces within the Home Area

    Residential Zones within the Home Area

    Unrestricted on-street non-metered spaces within the Home Area

    Where to make a stopover

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

    • Outside the car2go D.C. 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 get 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 and completed within the Home Area.

    We’re not above the law, be sure to take a look at the District of Columbia's rules.
