Transport in Port Phillip
Car Share Policy 2016 - 2021
The City of Port Phillip adopted the Car Share Policy 2016 to 2021 (DOCX 1 MB) on 26 July 2016.
Car share: The alternative to car ownership
Don’t buy a car- share a car with your neighbours.
Car sharing has taken the world by storm and is operating in over 600 cities.
Car sharing members have access to cars on demand for rent either by the hour or by the day and have no parking hassles when they're finished.
The rental cost covers all expenses, including petrol, insurance, registration and maintenance. People who drive less that 5,000 km per year will likely find car sharing will save them money.
To calculate the cost of owning a car per year. Visit RACV.

Some local residents make their own vehicles available for sharing through neighbour-to-neighbour car sharing platform Car Next Door.

Why does Council support this?
Every car share takes 7 to 10 cars off the road. Members of car share schemes reduce their car use by 50%.
Council’s vision is for a connected and liveable city where residents, visitors and workers can live and travel car free by improving the convenience, safety, accessibility and range of sustainable travel choices across our City.
In 2012 Council adopted the On-Street Car Share Policy.
