I love car2go – it’s a great option for getting around places easily and economically when you don’t have a car. I used it quite a bit when I did not have a car solely at my disposal – and now even when I do, I still use car2go sometimes if I’m going downtown. Just being able to park easier and get around is worth the price. It’s also a great option to take to the airport.
And if you’re attending the SXSW Festival that starts March 10 in Austin, it’s a fantastic option! Plus, you can get around with more than two people now, and in style: they’ve just introduced their new Mercedes Benz cars!
car2go has been making it easier for SXSW attendees to get to and from their next panel/movie/show for years – free from stress and surge pricing. This year, we will continue that tradition by offering four Drop Zones right in the heart of all the SXSW action. Details for those Drop Zones and our free registration promo are below, but here’s what’s new for SXSW 2017:
- New car options – travel with your group in style! With the addition of Mercedes-Benz car2govehicles to the Austin fleet, groups can travel together affordably and in style to all of their SXSW events. The new GLA is a sporty SUV with room for 5 people, and the CLA is a stylish 4-door sedan, perfect for 4 people.
- Hop in and drive within 24 hours! New members can use our app to register for car2go and have access to our network of vehicles within 24 hours of registration.
SXSW Drop Zones
car2go created the Drop Zone to put an end to the madness of circling the block hunting for a parking spot, or paying crazy parking fees, by offering our members free, guaranteed parking spots right in the heart of SXSW. This year, car2go will offer members four Drop Zones, which will be staffed by car2go for the duration of SXSW: Friday, March 10 – Sunday, March 19. It’s like free valet service, exclusively for car2go members! Please see a list of the SXSW 2017 Drop Zone locations below:
- 90 Brazos Street
- 700 San Jacinto
- 400 East 4th Street – right by the Convention Center
- 1590 East 5th Street
