Car sharing services facilitate spontaneous trips throughout downtown. Just get in and go.

Car Sharing Basics

Car sharing services allow you to use cars on an as-needed basis, whether you’re just going to a meeting down the road or heading goingto a doctor's appointment across town. They’re ideal for downtown visitors, rail commuters, and anyone else who wants to bypass the drive-and-park hassle. Both car2go and Zipcar allow members to access cars in cities outside of Austin, too.


With car2go, a low one-time membership fee gives you access to any of its distinctive blue-and-white Smart Cars. You can either reserve a car or make a spontaneous getaway from dozens of downtown locations. You’ll be billed only for the minutes you use the car and, when you’re done, just park the car anywhere in the car2go operating area. Learn more and sign up here.

Just find and reserve your ride from Zipcar’s website or mobile apps, pick it up at its designated parking spot and return it to the spot at the end of your trip. Rentals are per hour or per day.
