COURTESY OF FTP EDELMAN - A car2go vehicle outfitted with the new bike rack.Car2go recently installed bike racks on 50 of the car-sharing service's Mercedes GLA vehicles in Portland, creating an easier way for users to take trips involving bicycles.

Sophie Lair, a spokeswoman for the company, said car2go currently has about 62,000 members in Portland, after a recent 16 percent yearly growth rate. Lair said with bike racks reinstated and rising gas prices in the city, Portland residents should be ecstatic to save money with car2go's new addition.

AAA released findings in August 2017 stating that the average yearly cost for car-owners is $8,469, yet the average yearly transportation cost for car2go-owners is $3,898.
