Car2Go is leaving Miami
The service was here since 2012, but there was not enough business according to the company. It was an expensive proposition running the one-way car sharing business in Miami.
Miami was slow to adopt to the service unlike other cities.
I can't say I am sad to see them go, as in my eyes, they took up all the parking spaces, often times having as many as 15 cars in a one block stretch, which is a lot for Coconut Grove which is parking challenged on streets (we have plenty of lot and garage parking).
There were only about 300 cars in the fleet and it appeared as if most of them were dumped here and in Miami Beach (tourist areas).
A $1 a day service tax was also to blame for the suspension of the service.
