Car2go is a short-term car rental service in Denver. 

The Texas-based company says it will concentrate its cars where member demand is highest -- near downtown. Here's the new "home" service area:Map: New car2go service area(Courtesy car2go)

“Our members have consistently requested additional access to car2go vehicles in Denver’s urban core,” Michael Pletsch, General Manager of car2go Denver, said in a press release.

While customers can use the cars where ever they'd like, the cars must be dropped off in the home area. Neighborhoods cut out of the home area include west Denver near Sloan's Lake, Park Hill, east Denver near Hilltop, and south Denver -- with the exception of the University of Denver area.Map: Old Car2Go service area(Courtesy car2go)

Car2Go says it has more than 34,000 registered members in the city. The changes go into effect on Sept. 14 for "an extended period of time."

The company proposed a similar plan to scale back service in Minneapolis earlier this week.
