Help us plan for the future of car share in Port Phillip

Car share is a cost-effective alternative to owning a car, giving you 24/7 access to a vehicle on an “as needs basis”. Car share benefits everyone by reducing competition for car parking, and reducing traffic and greenhouse gas emissions from a reduction in car ownership and usage.

The City of Port Phillip has developed a new Car Share Policy to improve the way we manage car sharing and grow the network. The key changes in the Draft Policy include:

  • Increasing the membership target from 10% to 12% of the population 18 and over
  • Setting a target for a car share vehicle within 250m of 90% of our City (outside Fishermans Bend)
  • Introducing a usage target of a minimum of 60 hours per month
  • A revised emission target of 155 grams of CO2 per km for passenger vehicles

We’re keen to get your feedback on the draft policy and to capture ideas on how we can make car share best work for our community. We’d like to understand any barriers to using car share especially for women, gender diverse people, parents, carers, people with a disability, culturally and linguistically diverse groups and older people.
