Global Business Finds Room for Growth in Austin

Read time: < 1 minute

For the past several years, Austin has been notably recognized for its improving economy, job market and growth rate. This increasing rate of change has undeniably affected Austin businesses in a positive way, with one being Car2go. Last month, we mentioned Car2go is a great way to tour condos in Downtown Austin or bar hop to see music during SXSW, but it just keeps getting better.

On March 7, 2011, Car2go announced that due in part to the high demand of its services, it would be expanding its operating area by 63% and replacing existing cars with new upgraded models called the "Car2go edition" (pictured to the left, photo by Benzlnsider). Car2go also announced that it would be expanding its total car network from 200 to 300 cars operating in Austin.

From Car2go’s Facebook Fan Page, they’ve designated that the "new operating area will extend the south border to Ben White Boulevard/71 while the southwest border will follow 360 to Mopac. The west and northwest border will follow Lake Austin Boulevard to 35th Street back to Mopac up to Far West Boulevard then to Mesa Drive onto Steck Avenue and then Anderson Lane. The north border will extend to Anderson Lane / 183."

Car2go’s expansion is great news for travelers without cars or Austinites without parking in Downtown Austin who need quick transportation to and from their destinations.
