Car Sharing in Cork conference
Monday 17th September 2007 - Imperial Hotel, Cork

A Car Sharing Club is being proposed for Cork. There is convincing evidence that car sharing club members use the car less, driving less miles per year than before they joined. Car clubs also reduce the number of privately owned cars per household, enabling people to avoid the cost of a second car.
The Conference is for managers, policy-makers and professionals involved in transportation. It is of interest to developers, looking for ways to reduce the amount of car parking required for new city centre residential developments. For, employers and businesses, the interest lies in the way that a car sharing club can provide cars for use by staff on business, during the working day.
The Conference will be considered within the context of CASP (Cork Area Strategic Plan) and delivery of the Integrated Transport Strategy. Companies and organisations interested in supplying services to a car sharing club will be welcome.
The Conference is, of course, open to city residents who are particularly interested in seeing a car sharing club established in the city. Potential members of a Car Sharing Club will find the Exhibition and Demonstration afterwards especially informative.
This Conference has been organised by Cork City Council Traffic Division, with financial support from the Department of Transport and assistance from sustainable travel specialists, Richard Armitage Transport Consultancy Ltd. and Mendes Ltd.
