First Car Share Space On My Street

This post is not to do with food but it is to do with urban sustainability which I'm equally passionate about.
My street in Potts Point has just got its first City of Sydney-approved car share space. The green and white striped space is used to park a GoGet car. 

I'm a GoGet member so this is really exciting and wonderfully convenient.

Australia's city councils have been woefully slow in supporting car share schemes. These schemes have been running successfully in Canada, the US and Europe for decades.

Maybe with fewer cars on the road my balcony zucchini will breathe a little easier!


  1. That is fantastic! We have just discovered that there is a GoGet space behind our office in Rozelle too...which is great for us also. Wonderful positive signs that there are other people who are on the same wavelength re: urban sustainability.

  2. We are members of StreetCar in London, having just relocated from Sydney. We have used the car 3 times in the past 4 months, demonstrating just how little a couple needs a whole car all of their own. Love it!

  3. Wow, that's a fantastic idea. I hope everyone who uses the car, respects it and the concept is a success.

    Cheers - Joolz

  4. Wow, I'd never heard of this but will be telling all my Sydney friends.
