Choose the length of time you want to rent the GoCar, from 1 hour to a full day, and pick up the cute, 2-passenger vehicle in central San Diego.

Plug your itinerary into the GPS system and set off on an audio-guided route to the historic Gaslamp quarter, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, Old Town or other top destinations.

As you drive, and get step-by-step instructions from the GPS, plus recorded narration on passing attractions and San Diego history. Fast enough to join regular traffic, GoCar can also access smaller streets and alleyways that tour buses can’t. Bonus: Parking is a breeze—the car will even fit into a motorcycle spot.

When your time is up, simply drop the car off at the pickup point.
