Parking made easy

Parking in a car2go is simple, but it's important to know where you can and can't park. In Columbus, we cover the fees for parking and stopovers in public metered spaces. What’s more, you’ll be able to use any legal street parking throughout the operating area to end your rental. For more information see ending a trip and Stopovers.

Before leaving your car, you must observe all parking signage and abide by the Parking Rules and FAQ .

Always ready to go.

Your car2go is waiting

Here's an overview of the car2go home area . You can start trips anywhere inside the home area wherever there's a car available, and end trips wherever there is qualified parking available. You can always visit places, friends and family outside the home area but you always need to bring the car back home to end your trip. You will not be able to end the trip until the car reenters the home area. And be sure to know the Parking Rules and FAQ before you go.

car2go at the Easton Town Center

Drive. Shop. Eat

The Easton Town Center and car2go Columbus have partnered to offer designated car2go parking spaces that are perfect for trips to a favorite Columbus destination. The designated spots are located on both sides of Easton and can accommodate a total of 20 car2go vehicles.

The spots allow members convenient parking options and the flexibility to shop without worrying about trip times while outside of the car2go Home Area. The two parking areas are clearly marked with designated car2go parking signs and members are allowed to park two car2gos in each normal-sized parking space.

One parking location is at the Southeast corner lot at Easton Loop West and Easton Station, just southwest of the main indoor mall and across from the Trader Joe's. The other location is found near the Apple Store, northeast of the outdoor Central Park Fountain.
