Where can I park and end my trip?

To end the trip, you need to be inside the Home Area. The Home Area is our operative area, in which SHARE NOW cars free-float around the city. You can park for free on any legal public street parking space within this area. It's possible to park and end your trip in drop off zones outside the city in your Home Area, but a drop off fee will apply.

What is a Home Area? Can I drive outside of it?

Think of the Home Area as our operating area, in which our cars free-float around the city and where you can park on the streets for free. You may leave the Home Area, but you must drive back to the same Home Area to end the trip.

If you're driving an electric car, please note that the range of a fully charged electric smart can go up to 100 km, while a BMW i3 can go up to 200 km.

What is a drop off zone?

Drop off zones are part of the Home Area but are usually located a little outside the city. A drop off fee applies when you park the car and end your trip in drop off zones (marked "Zone A" or "Zone B" on the Home Area map). The drop off fee does not apply if you start and end your trip within the same drop off zone.
