It is a priority of the City to increase mobility options for its residents, businesses, and visitors. A robust car sharing program provides the opportunity to reduce parking demand and vehicle miles traveled, and enhance mobility options for subscribers. The success of car sharing will have environmental, economic, and quality of life benefits for residents, employees, and visitors while also balancing the needs of other uses in the public right-of-way.

Car-sharing service is a fee-based membership service, subject to a membership agreement, that provides all qualified drivers in the community access to a fleet of vehicles and is available to subscribers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year at unattended self-service locations. No spate written agreement is required each time a member reserves and uses a vehicle. Car usage is provided subject to membership agreement at minutes, hourly, and/or per mile rates that include fuel, insurance, and maintenance.

The car-share permit program allow qualifying car share operators to apply for dedicated on-street spaces or home area parking in the public right-of-way. For information, please review the Car-Sharing Rules and Regulations (Updated 6.24.2019).

The City of Columbus currently has one permitted car share operator in the Public Right of Way.  The operator, Zipcar, has dedicated car share spaces throughout Columbus.  For more information on Zipcar in Columbus, please visit
