Having a car in Montreal is a luxury most of us don't have. Forced to use more affordable means of transportation, us pedestrians and metro-ers lack the perks a car provides. Busses don't have trunk space, the metro can't bring you exactly where you need to be, and bixis don't protect you against icy winds. Now, thanks to Car2Go, a newly launched automobile service in Montreal, you can have all of the benefits of owning a car, while staying green, and without any of the responsibility or maintenance.

Car2Go is kind of like a city-wide Smart car sharing service. After you sign up for a membership, you can grab a set of wheels at any of the Car2Go stations which are widespread in nearly every district of the city.
