Car share parking
Car share parking is an efficient use of parking space because a single car share vehicle can replace many private vehicles that would otherwise compete for local parking. Car share also reduces overheads for residents who rarely drive, and do not need to own their own vehicle.
Council supports car sharing as a part of its drive to:
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions;
- reduce on-street parking demand;
- reduces congestion and the competition for parking spaces; and
- encourage active lifestyles by reducing dependency on private cars
Council has a number of on-street and off-street Car Share parking spaces in the Council area.

The GoGet car must be returned to the dedicated space on street you took it from.
At the end of each month you will receive an activity statement which will itemise each booking including any extras.
