Owning a car in NYC or Brooklyn can be a huge challenge. Why stress? Rent cars by the hour from New York’s car share and get free gas, insurance and parking on return.

How it Works:

  • Find cars

    Cars are parked all around the borough—click “Find Cars” to find one near you!

  • Reserve

    Reserve your car for just the time that you’ll need it—from as little as 1 hour

  • Hop In

    Use your membership card to unlock the car and start/end your reservation

  • Drive Off

    Enjoy your driving freedom, and return the car to its reserved Carpingo spot

Carpingo is the freedom of a car only when you need it. It’s Cariffic™!

What it Costs:

After minimal membership, the only cost of driving a Carpingo car is your reservation time.


That’s right! Just pull up and fill up with the fuel card kept in the vehicle.


Your Carpingo membership covers insurance for every reservation.


We keep rates low by keeping insurance costs low. To make this possible, Carpingo members must be 21 years or older, have a valid driver’s license, and no convictions for drunk-driving, illegal possession of a vehicle or at-fault accidents over the last 3 years.
