Someone correct me if this is how it works, you pay $35 upfront. They charge you $.38 per minute that you're driving.

Pros:
Absolutely pay $0 for parking. If you're parking in the city, and a cop rolls by, they keep it moving.
FREE GAS.
If the tank is less than 1/4 full, they give you 20 free minutes upon filling.
Provide insurance coverage
When going to an event like a state fair, they even set up a parking lots reserved for Car2Gos

Cons:
You're only allowed to drive within a certain area. Otherwise, if you're outside of the area and you're parked, they continue charging you by the minute.
You're stuck with a SmartCar.

I am extremely interested..... Anything else I should know about?

I live 10 minutes away from the city + parking over there is $2.00-$2.50 an hour. I would drive the Car2Go if I plan on spending the entire day in Downtown since parking would be free.
There's also a huge fair here next week, so parking would be impossible. I would just drive the Car2Go since they would have a reserved parking lot.

Why not just take a taxi? It would be cheaper and a lot easier.

Uh, no, it wouldn't.

That's from my house to Niketown Seattle that I live 10 minutes away from.
I wouldn't go strictly off of that. That is just using the mileage and assessing the meter rate associated with that mileage.

Most places charge based on different zones. For instance here, a trip anywhere in the downtown area will only cost you $5. I'd call a cab company and get a quote from them.

Yea, that def isn't the case. So I stand by my initial reply. Take a cab, it will be easier and cheaper.

If ur under 25 go with goaround its cheap depending on the car u choose and big cities usually have more options. .. if ur over 25 any rental place is good unless I have no insurance then goaround is the better choice since it include insurance. .. unless they have changed their policies...

About a 40 minute trip total with bus and train. But I lost all patience for public transportation after I got my license. :lol:
