Car sharing is a cheap, green and easy alternative to car ownership for individuals and businesses. Council is keen to promote car sharing as an effective tool to help remove more cars from our roads and parking areas. Flexicar and Council are currently considering the introduction of car share parking spaces within Heidelberg and Ivanhoe.
If you are interested in the possibility of car sharing in your area, let Council and some of the car sharing companies know; the more interest the more car share spaces we might see.
