Zipcar to expand on-street spaces in San Francisco
Zipcar plans to expand its on-street locations throughout the City of San Francisco in light of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) recent approval of a Permanent On-Street Parking Permit Program. The SFMTA Board of Directors will be designating up to 1,000 parking spaces for car sharing vehicles and will be asking the public for input on where those spaces will be located.
Since 2014, the city has permitted around 200 spaces under the On-Street Car Sharing Pilot Program with the main goal of making transit, walking, bicycling, taxi, ride sharing and car sharing the preferred means of travel. Throughout the past few years, the pilot program proved to be an excellent tool in extending the benefits of car sharing and eliminating thousands of vehicles from San Francisco streets.
Zipcar welcomes this program in hopes of increasing the visibility, access, and adoption of car sharing across San Francisco neighborhoods to make a significant positive impact on the city’s transportation ecosystem and the environment.
