Car sharing

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.

Car sharing benefits

The benefits of car sharing include:

  • Cost savings for users (paying for the time you use a car, not the other standard costs of car ownership)
  • Access to a range of current model cars
  • Allocated parking bays for car share vehicles when collecting and returning cars
  • 24/7 booking via desktop or mobile device.
