This consultation is now closed.
Council is investigating whether to go ahead with a pilot car share space program along ten Inner West Light Rail stops from Rozelle to Dulwich Hill interchange. The program will integrate car share, active and public transport, improving options for residents and visitors to the area.
Council was approached by a car share firm to run the pilot program designating 20 additional car share spaces in ten different locations. It resolved at its meeting on 30 April 2019 to make sure other car share firms would be able to use the spaces and to seek community feedback on the proposed program.
What is a car share space?
Car share spaces are for cars owned by a car share company and rented usually by the hour by member drivers. There are a number of car share operators in Sydney. Car share use benefits the community by reducing the number of private cars parked on the street and encouraging shared and sustainable transport.
What this means for parking in your neighbourhood
Depending on the location one to four parking spaces next to the Light Rail stops will be designated as full time car share vehicles only. This may mean some loss of unrestricted parking.
