Private car-sharing with two seater Smart cars
Despite having recently been downsized, Car2Go is the most widespread car sharing service amongst all public or private ones in Rome. Car2Go has a fleet of around 500 cars (all of them two seater Smart cars), and offers the possibility to rent them and park them in a large portion of the city. The free-parking system (cars can be borrowed and parked everywhere in the area covered by the service) and the great number of circulating cars made this service successful. The ideal thing to do is to use cars as well as the metro and the bus to reduce the car hire charges (you pay for every minute of use) and avoid catching the bus or the train too much. The service is also available in the Italian cities of Florence, Milan and Turin as well as in different cities in Germany, Austria, Sweden and The Netherlands: all the customers of those cities and countries can rent cars in Rome and vice versa, which is convenient for tourists and visitors of the Eternal City. The customer service office can be found at Stazione Ostiense (Via Pellegrino Matteucci, 138/140).
