THE City of North Vancouver is making (parking) space for car-share programs to set up shop on the North Shore.

Council voted Monday night to allow resident-exempt parking permits for car shares, and to create reserved on-street parking spots for vehicles belonging to co-ops.

Council agreed allowing car shares to operate would help with the city's goals of offering more travel choices for residents, lowering per-capita greenhouse gas emissions and reducing impact on the environment. The decisions mean Car 2 Go, Zipcar and Modo the Car Co-Op, can stake out spots for their short-term car borrowing.
