Explanation

This ordinance suspends the application of Section 2151.18(a) and Section 2155.05(a) of the Columbus City Codes, 1959, as applied to car2go in order to allow for the implementation of a twelve (12) month Car-Sharing Pilot Program. Section 2151.18(a) currently does not allow parking of car-sharing vehicles in residential permit parking districts. This pilot program will allow car2go vehicles to legally park in residential permit parking districts approved by the Director of Public Service. In addition, Section 2155.05(a) establishes that meters are to be paid at the time of parking by the person parking. The pilot program will allow the car-sharing company to directly pay the City for car-sharing customers’ parking meter time during this pilot program.
