Car share drivers in Vancouver just got more perks from the city. The City of Vancouver has approved new rules around the use of car share services within the city.


With the new rules, car share vehicles will be allowed to be dropped off in metered parking spaces. In addition, these vehicles that might expect to stop multiple times within a single trip multi-stop trip can park for free for up to two hours at a meter.

As for offsetting the cost of the lost parking revenue, the car share companies will take it on themselves.

The city is also pushing car share companies to switch to electric vehicles by waiving the annual $77.19 per-vehicle parking permit fee.

Lastly, the city will now charge car share companies a flat fee to reserve permanent parking spaces that would otherwise be for metered parking.

It’s not known at this this when these new rules will come into effect.
