Parking without searching
Parking in a car2go is simple, but it's important to know where you can and can't park. In Portland, you may park in any non-restricted curb side parking throughout the car2go Home Area as well as any Area Permit Parking space. You can park at all parking meter locations without having to feed the meter but may not end your trip in spaces limited to 30 minutes or less. You are allowed to park and end trips in 1-2 hour restrictive parking zones. Commercial, valet, and taxi zones are strictly prohibited. Also note that spaces that convert to traffic lanes are also prohibited.
Before leaving your car, please observe all parking signage and be sure to know the complete Parking Rules and FAQ.

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 make sure to know the Parking Rules before you go.
