Car 2 Go Now Offering Regional Access

Called Moovel, now all North American car2go members can use the car2go service in any of car2go’s 13 cities across the U.S. and Canada:

Columbus, OH

Denver, CO
Portland OR
Austin TX
Washington DC
Southern Los Angeles area  CA
Toronto ONT
Miami FL
Vancouver BC
Seattle WA
Montreal, Quebec
Calgary, Alberta
San Diego CA

Expect a similar offering soon from Zipcar, Hertz 24/7 or similar company.  The convenience of Car2Go will erode their market share until they react.

Note - San Francisco is not covered, partly because of parking issues.  Apparently SF thinks that car sharing is less green than mass transit, even though one Car2Go can take 15-20 conventional cars off the street.
