TRN-3.309 - Carsharing Parking Administrative Rules

CARSHARING PARKING ADMINISTRATIVE RULES

Administrative Rules Adopted by Bureau of Transportation Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority

ARB-TRN-3.309


1. POLICY 

The City of Portland recognizes that carsharing provides benefits to the City and its residents. Carsharing can help reduce greenhouse gases and harmful air pollution and reduce traffic congestion while increasing travel options including transit ridership, biking, and walking. To support carsharing in Portland, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) allows carshare organizations to obtain a permit with parking rules and regulations that help support carsharing operations.

2. PURPOSE

The purpose of this administrative rule is to establish a transparent and consistent policy for allowing carshare vehicles to operate and park in Portland. The operation of a commercial carshare company that locates cars in city right-of-way is a privilege, not a right. This administrative rule describes the rules and requirements for carshare parking permits. Carshare companies must certify to the City of Portland that all shared vehicles have met applicable certifications and operating requirements.
