car2go coming to brooklyn

The way it works is; you don't have to reserve beforehand. You just go over to the car and drive.  Pay 41 cents per minute ($14.99 maximum per hour). Return it to any legal parking space.

Get 30 minutes for signing up (with promo code BKLYN that also waives the signup fee [thank you menachem_m]).

Get 40 minutes for referring a friend (up to 3 friends).

One way rentals! This is awesome.

You don't have to return it to the original location, as with ZipCar.

Do they approve under 21?  What about student on the application they ask if you are a student does it make better or worse?

could come in handy but not a big enough area to make one ways such a great deal - by the time your finished locating paying parking - might as well Uber

it actually stops right before CH. so technically you can walk 5 min to a car (if you're located near Eastern Parkway)

From 770 ;) - EP and Nostrand is their closest place to CH. Do you have to drop it off in that zone or could you drop off outside the limits? Also if you have free minutes can you use it in another city? Looking at Montreal area for example, I see many cars around the Lubavitch area.

Well, if you live a block away from 770 it's still fine ;)

Yes you do have to return it in their area.

well, to go from bp to williamsburg (if it's within their area) let's say for 10$ it's pretty cheap.

It's basically meant for small trip. considering that it covers gas and insurance I don't think that it's so expensive. plus, if you refuel it every once in a while you get 20 min
