car2go comes to Denver!
car2go is the innovative and revolutionary new transportation and car-sharing service that is rapidly expanding into large metro areas. Denver is the latest – and let us tell you – we are lucky! This could be the next-best thing in Denver, transportation-wise, since the light rail expanded to Golden.
When you use car2go, you have access to a full fleet of fuel-efficient and low-emission two-seater smart cars. They can be used in an “on-demand” fashion or reserved up to a half an hour in advance. Unlike traditional car-sharing programs, car2go allows users to use the car for as long as they’d like, with no specific return time or location. Simply find a car2go parked on the street or in a designated lot that isn’t in use, scan your member card (don’t worry, there’s no contract involved), and you’re on your way! Then, finish your trip by parking the car in any authorized parking space in car2go’s “home area” (a surprisingly generous portion of Denver – see the map below), scan your member card one more time, and you’re done. It’s literally that simple!
The prices involved in this program honestly seem a bit too good to be true at first glance. There’s a registration fee, which isn’t bad at all (less than the cost of a tank of gas in most cars these days), and you only pay for the time you use – per minute, per hour, or even per day. Gas, re-charging (it’s part hybrid), insurance, and parking are all included. You can even earn credit by re-fueling or re-charging it yourself! Find more on the pricing structure here.
Since they’re new to the area, car2go is offering an awesome promotion – for a limited time, you can sign up for a FREE lifetime membership and get a half hour of free drive time using a special promo code for Denver. Find out more here.
