Car2go On the Go

Car2go has hit the streets of Portland. Already spotted on the streets of downtown, car2go is sponsoring a free event this weekend, March 31 and April 1, at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Cars filled the Square, and from the number on display, it seems likely that these tiny white and blue vehicles will soon be a common sight around town.

From their website:

car2go Portland has simple and attractive by-the-minute rates, so you only pay for what you use. At just 35 cents per minute, members enjoy fuel, parking, mileage, insurance, maintenance, cleaning, GPS navigation, 24/7 customer support service and roadside assistance at no extra cost. Your usage is billed daily to your credit card, so you never have to worry about finding cash.

The more you drive, the cheaper it gets. One hour costs a maximum of $12.99, and one day (up to 24 hours) is no more than $65.99.

  1. That’s actually a pretty good deal. Really not much more than a rental car, but it’s more flexible. I think from what I remember it is more competitive than Zip Cars.

    • They sure had a lot of them at Pioneer Courthouse Square today. And we have already been seeing them around. It looks like they are off to a running start.

What do you think?
