PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The Portland Bureau of Transportation is in the process of finalizing a new annual permit for Car2Go, which currently requires the company to pay close to $675,000 for street parking.

PBOT spokesperson Diane Dulken told KOIN 6 News the overall program with Car2Go is “working well and we have a good relationship” with the company.

The Oregonian reports residents have complained about Car2Go, because several of the vehicles frequently line the curbs in their neighborhoods for days on end. Business owners have said that the micro vehicles take up too much parking that could instead be used for customers.

Car2Go spokeswoman Dacyl Armendariz says the company is open to working with business owners on parking-related issues.

Dulken told KOIN 6 News the city is always open to feedback, but she suggested anyone with a direct Car2Go issue should call the company. If that answer is not satisfactory, a person should then call the city.
