Cityhop has a number of business partners who provide car parks to it. We and our members can’t thank them enough for recognising carshare works! And we thought more people should know about their forward thinking.
Many of the people who have donated a car park to us also use car share. So who are these thoughtful organisations? Maybe you might like to see if your company is interested in having its own carshare car on site? We are always looking for new locations. Give us a call on 374 5081
First up, Isthmus whose car park is in Sale St. Gavin Lister, a director of Isthmus decided to give up his own private park for car share so he and his team as well as members of the public can carshare instead of owning their own car. Isthmus is a New Zealand-based design practice with an international profile in executing award-winning landscape architecture, urban design and landscape planning.
Massey University was next. Their SHORE and Whariki units which are based at Massey University House at 90 Symonds St house a team of twenty to thirty social science researchers who use car share to move about. We think this university shows that they really are at the leading edge of learning and new ways of doing things!
Wilson Parking have provided our Garret St car park and soon this will be another Wellington location nearby. This is an important park for Cityhop because this and the previous Customs Street car park are open air and very visible. One of the challenges for carshare in New Zealand is that we are usually in car parks. People who use buses trains or walk don’t see us and don’t know there is an alternative to car ownership. So being on-street or in an open air car park and sitting practically on the pavement is important visibility for us. Thank you Wilson Parking.
Last month, Cooper & Co who are responsible for the new attractive developments at Britomart and the rejuvenation of the Britomart area have got behind car share with a car park in their new car park.
And of course, Auckland Transport has recently given cityhop 10 onstreet car park spaces.
Thank you supporters.
