To increase the mobility of its students, staff, and faculty, City University of Seattle has partnered with car2go! As the world’s first free-floating car sharing service, car2go provides a new way of car sharing that is perfect for the urban dweller and the 21st century student who wants to get around town but doesn’t want to use their own car or doesn’t own a car.
As part of this partnership, car2go will offer CityU free membership (a $35 value) and give the first 30 minutes free.
How to sign up
If you are a CityU student, faculty or staff member go here to sign up and use the promotional code – CITYU0030. This will waive your initial $35 membership fee and give you 30 minutes of free driving! You will receive your membership card within 3-5 days of registering.
How it works
Once you’ve signed up, you simply find the nearest available car2go and drive away. You can find available cars by:
- Using this app on your smartphone;
- Going to the car2go finder at car2go.com;
- Calling customer service – 877.488.4224;
- Locating an available car on the street.
- Members can pick up and drop off their car2go in any legal, non-restricted, on-street, parking space. This includes metered, non-metered and residential parking spaces. Any street metered parking is FREE. You never pay for a parking meter As long as it is a legal space no car2go vehicle is required to pay the meter!
To get in and drive this stylish vehicle, you must place your member card in front of the card reader on the windshield, and your trip will begin. To find out more about how this works, you can go here.
International students can use this
If you’re an international student you can register and become a member just like everyone else. However, car2go will need to review your international driver’s license and a copy of your 3-year personal driving record before you drive, so please allow them time to do this. They will process your paperwork and will notify you once you are approved to drive.
If you are already a member in another city, please call car2go’s Seattle office at 206-420-4684 or email them at email@example.com.
