A suburb of Sydney called Newtown has been running a very effective and clever program recently called Newtown CarShare.

It is a brilliant idea and one that is helping families and the environment.

Anytime you need transport you simply book your car online or by phone for as little as an hour or longer.  There’ll be a car somewhere close by (within a 5 minute walk) and all you have to do is jump in, drive and park it back in the same spot. 

I costs as little as AUS$4.00 for an hour for a standard car and it’s FREE between the hours of midnight and 6am.  Handy if you fancy doing an illegal taxi run (not that PSFK condone that behaviour!).  Newtown CarShare also pay for all petrol costs. If you need to refuel you simply use the fuel card placed in the glovebox.
