Car Share

GoGet car in Pennant Hills

Car share is an effective way to reduce traffic congestion and emissions and make the most efficient use of on-street parking space. A car share vehicle can replace many private vehicles that would otherwise compete for local parking.

Council supports car sharing and adopted a Car Share Parking Policy (April 2020) as a part of efforts to:

  • reduce dependency on private cars
  • encourage sustainable travel and active transport, such as walking and cycling
  • reduce on-street parking demand and traffic congestion
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • provide access to a car without the expense of private ownership

As part of a trial car share program started in 2021 with GoGet, there are now 11 dedicated on-street car share parking spaces throughout the Shire at:

  • Hornsby – Albert Street near Water Street
  • Hornsby – Linda Street near Hunter Street
  • Hornsby – May Street near Muriel Street
  • Hornsby – Muriel Street near Florence Street
  • Hornsby – Peats Ferry Road near Coronation Street
  • Hornsby – William Street near Peats Ferry Road
  • Pennant Hills – Yarrara Road near Ramsay Road
  • Waitara – Alexandria Parade near Waitara Avenue
  • Waitara – Park Avenue near Park Lane
  • Waitara – Romsey Street near Leonard Street
  • Waitara – Waitara Avenue near Edgeworth David Avenue

With the constant developments surrounding COVID-19, GoGet has instituted a range of precautionary measures for additional safety and peace-of-mind, including  increased vehicle cleaning and vehicle identification and reporting processes to ensure a rapid response to any issue.

Local businesses can join the service free of charge and book cars by the hour or the day. Personal plans start from $12 a month.
