“Free-floating” car share allows a member to rent an available car share vehicle, and complete the trip anywhere in a designated “home zone.” The member may drive the vehicle out of the zone, but can only end a trip within the zone. The viability of this model relies on the car share organization’s ability to park its vehicles on-street in both metered and residential areas free from parking duration limits. Vehicles are available 24/7 and are owned by a private car share organization. The City adopted the Free-Floating Zone Parking Permit (FFZPP) and the Master Residential Parking Permit (MRPP) in February of 2015.
Real-time data on rentable vehicle locations is available via Application Programming Interface (API) in the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS) format at the following web links:
