Car2go won't wait for Toronto to OK its full car-share service
Company says it tried to get city hall to establish regulations for parking shared vehicles on the street
Car2go says it's tired of waiting for the City of Toronto to establish parking regulations for shared vehicles and will go ahead with its full service in Canada's largest city on March 31.
The move by Car2go's car-sharing offering would bring its Toronto operation into line with what's already available in other North American cities.
Its Toronto service has been restricted compared with Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary and all other Car2go cities because members haven't been allowed to leave their vehicles on the street in legal parking spaces.

Car2go says it has tried unsuccessfully to get city hall to establish regulations for parking shared vehicles on the street but won't wait any longer and will provide full service beginning at the end of the month.
The company says its members aren't responsible for parking tickets, so long as they abide by Car2go's parking guidelines.
