Car sharing and the City

The City installed its first car sharing parking space in 2008. Since then, over 800 dedicated on-street car share parking spaces have been added to the network (less than 2% of all kerbside parking). In addition, our local planning controls will increase the number of car sharing spaces provided in new commercial and residential developments.

Residents and businesses in the City of Sydney area hold over 50,000 car share memberships. Car share users typically avoid or reduce car ownership, resulting in fewer cars on city streets, reducing competition for parking and vehicle emissions.
