Car2Go vehicles are 2 seat cars that can fit up to 2 people and small cargo. Car2Gos charge by the minute. Gas and parking at regular city meters within the home area are included. A Car2Go rental can be ended at any city parking space within the Car2Go's home area that meets Car2Go's guidelines of an acceptable end-of-rental space.
Car2Go and OHSU
Marquam Hill and all OHSU parking facilities are not considered part of Car2Go's home area--meaning Car2Go will charge you for the entire time the car is on campus. Best used for short visits, drop offs, or off-campus.
Getaround is a peer-to-peer car sharing service, meaning anyone with a vehicle that meets Getaround's terms of service may rent out that vehicle to approved Getaround members. in 2011, Oregon adjusted the law on auto insurance to accommodate such peer-to-peer car sharing.
Getaround and OHSU
Getaround vehicles are often available on or near campus. If you have a car parked on campus, you may rent it out and control who you approve as a renter.
