    A new car sharing program is cruising into Miami this weekend.

    "I don't know if any NFL linebackers will want to get in one, but other than that, if it works out, I'd be interested," said Nick Lankford, who lives in downtown Miami.

    Like others, he's a little skeptical about the size, but this car sharing program _ called car2go _ is already in 14 cities worldwide. The program will have 240 new Smart cars.

    "You are free to drive as long as you want. No reservations required, and no restrictions on when or where to bring the car back," Nicholas Cole, CEO of car2go.

    Cole said that once a person becomes a member, a member card is used to get into the car and it costs 38 cents per minute that the car is being driven.

    "If the light is flashing green, it means the car is available. You can also see what cars are available by using the car2go app. Or by calling the number on the back of the card. And we can tell you exactly where the car closest to you is located." Cole said.

    Once inside the car, a four-digit pin is punched in and the car starts.

    The cars will be scattered all through the city, covering more than 30 square miles.

    "If you are a member in Miami, and you are in San Diego for business, you would have access to the vehicles there as well," Cole said. "You don't have to worry about paying for parking, or insurance.. You don't have to pay for fuel."
