car2go N.A., LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Daimler North America Corporation, and the City of San Diego have launched the first first all-electric car sharing network in North America. This network will make emissions-free driving available and affordable throughout San Diego.
car2go is providing a free-floating network of vehicles that is available on-demand for point-to-point trips. Members can use car2go with or without a reservation, for as long as they would like, without having to commit to a return time or location.
Members have access to the car2go network of electric vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week. When they’re finished using the vehicle, members can park in a car2go-designated spot, at city non-restricted meters or on-street in residential neighborhoods within the car2go operating area. Parking, recharging, insurance and maintenance are included. Members pay by the minute, and only for the time they use the vehicle, with discounted rates for hourly and daily use.
San Diego licensed drivers can register to become car2go members at sandiego.car2go.com or at the car2go San Diego office located at 633 9th Avenue in San Diego’s East Village neighborhood. Currently, the membership fee of $35 is waived, and each new member will receive 30 free minutes of driving time.
