Apply for a car share bay permit

In 2019, we adopted a Car Share Policy and Car Share Implementation Plan. The policy and plan provides detailed information about the procedures and responsibilities for implementing up to an additional 85 on-street car share bays and 46 off-street car share bays in Yarra over the next five years.  

Planned system outage

Yarra City Council has a planned system outage scheduled from 6:00 pm Friday 24 April to 10:30 am Monday 27 April. Some payment services and applications will be affected, including: paying for a permit application, creating a debt account, animal registration, and local law fines. Online applications via eServices will also be affected – no applications will be able to be created online.

In Yarra, we seek to increase the use of car sharing while ensuring the expansion of the car share network within Yarra is well-governed and transparent. 

How to apply

We will accept car share bay permit applications from qualifying providers twice a year. The first application commences in March 2020. 

To apply, car share providers must complete a car share bay application form. All sections of the form must be completed and returned.   

Before applying for a car share bay permit, car share providers must demonstrate compliance listed in Attachment 1 of the Car Share Policy 2019-2024.

  • siting and location criteria for car share bays
