What is car sharing?
Car share services give you the benefits of accessible transportation without the obligations and costs of owning a car. The cost of car share is based on the usage by the driver. Paying for the time you use a car which can be booked for a short trip or multiple days.
Traffic congestion in urban areas is a challenge facing all community members. Victoria saw an 8.3% increase in vehicles registered between 2015 and 2020. This increase in traffic places greater strain on parking availability and driver on-road time. By using car share, Glen Eira residents and visitors can enjoy the benefits of accessing a car while reducing the number of cars on our roads.

The benefits of car sharing include:
