Council to drive new car share integration pilot at light rail stations

Friday 3 May 2019

Council will partner with GoGet Car Share to roll out a pilot program integrating car share with the Inner West light rail link, greatly expanding transport options for residents travelling into the Inner West.

Council will consult closely with local residents about the installation of the car share spaces, with the aim to provide up to 20 additional spaces close to light rail stations.

Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne, who proposed the partnership at Council, said that GoGet were keen to integrate car share and public transport along the light rail line.

“With tens of thousands of car share members across the Inner West it makes sense to integrate car share with our light rail line,” he said.

“It is great to see a company like GoGet, which was established in Newtown 15 years ago, wanting to pioneer a new connection with light rail in our backyard.

“The additional car share spaces at light rail stations can allow residents and visitors to travel the bulk of their journey by public transport, and then transfer to car share for the ‘last-mile’ of their trip.”

Any spaces approved for the pilot will be allocated as a general ‘car share’ space. This will allow Council to operate a competitive car share environment.

“This pilot could be used not only to improve transport options for our residents and visitors, but also to prove the viability of such integration across the city and potentially all of Australia,” said Byrne.

Council will investigate the viability of new car share spaces at the following light rail locations:

  • Rozelle Bay Light Rail Station
  • Lilyfield Light Rail Station
  • Leichhardt North Light Rail Station
  • Hawthorne Light Rail Station
  • Marion Light Rail Station
  • Lewisham Light Rail Station
  • Waratah Mills Light Rail Station
  • Arlington Road Light Rail Station
  • Dulwich Grove Light Rail Station
  • Dulwich Hill Light Rail Station
