September 14 will mark the launch of the unique point-to-point car-sharing service from car2go in Minneapolis, making it the first Midwestern American city to feature the program. car2go, which is a Daimler AG subsidiary, will now be already operating in 23 cities around the world with over 400,000 registered members worldwide.
In the beginning, a network of no less than 300 car2go edition smart fortwo models will become available for on-demand shared use in the metropolitan Minneapolis area, with the revolutionary system combining on-street parking with one-way trips that offer a quite bit more flexibility and comfort than existing means of public transportation.

“Carshare providers, like car2go, provide yet another way for Minneapolis residents to get around our city without having to rely on owning their own cars,” said Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak. “I have talked a lot about reweaving the urban fabric for our city to continue to grow and this is another creative way to give people from all neighborhoods access to all parts of our city.”

Including the upcoming program for Minneapolis, there are currently eight US car2go locations: Washington D.C., Miami, Austin, Denver, San Diego, Portland and Seattle.
