Car Sharing in Paris

In Paris a massive public car sharing scheme has been proposed by the City's Mayor. 2000 cars in the central city and 2000 cars in the suburbs will be available for pick up and drop off at 700 different spots. The scheme is being targeted at young people who do not own a car to reduce their need to purchase their own.

CAST's current Car Share policy is:
Encourage car sharing cooperatives and companies
• Government officers to develop guidelines for setting up a car-sharing cooperatives in Brisbane
• Advertise the concept and its benefits through billboards, public seminars and radio/TV advertisements
• Subsidise the purchase of “green” vehicles for co-ops and companies
• Provide car parking spaces for registered car share vehicles at various destinations
