Can I park Car Next Door vehicles in designated "Car Share" spaces?

Short answer:

Unfortunately, the majority of Car Next Door cars cannot be parked in the signed "car share vehicle only" car spaces that you may see around the streets. 

Those car spaces have been installed by Council, usually in return for payment, by agreement with a corporate car-share company (e.g. GoGet or GreenShareCar). They are specifically assigned to that car share operator, and are for use by a particular vehicle in their fleet.

The only exception to this rule is if the parking instructions for the car you're driving specifically state that it lives in a car share parking bay. You may park the car in its designated parking bay when returning it at the end of your trip. You may not park the car in any other car share parking bay during your trip. No other Car Next Door cars can be parked in that car's parking bay as it is assigned to a specific vehicle in the Car Next Door fleet.

Want to start some change in your neighbourhood?

We'd love to have more Car Next Door cars in allocated car share parking bays. You can contact your local councillor and ask them whether they've considered allocating more car sharing spaces to peer-to-peer car sharers - if you'd like a hand, drop us a line at
