Parking & Transportation

car2go at MRU

car2go is Calgary’s newest car sharing program that brings a whole new way to get around the city. Simply jump in a car when you need one, drive it for as long or as short as you like, and only pay for the time that you use. It’s the freedom and flexibility you want without the hassles and costs of car ownership.

Get around on your schedule

The future of urban mobility begins on every corner with car2go – where one of over 200 vehicles is waiting for you. Locate the nearest car using your smartphone, the car2go online car finder, or by calling the call centre, and unlock the door using your member card. Rentals can be started spontaneously on-demand, or by making a reservation up to 24 hours in advance. There are no monthly or yearly costs to become a member, and drives are billed exactly to the minute – affordable pay-as-you go rates include gas, parking, insurance, and maintenance!


Free on-campus parking

Mount Royal and car2go are proud to offer students and staff a fun, flexible, and convenient way to get to and from campus. Whether you need a car for a quick trip around the city or to get home at the end of the day, free parking is available both on-campus and almost anywhere within the Calgary Home Area. With no designated return times or locations, you do not need to return the car to where you picked it up from – one-way trips are allowed!

Rentals can be ended on-campus at any of the following locations (map):

  • Lot 1 (3 dedicated stalls)
