A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to establishing a carsharing parking pilot program

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Subchapter 2 of chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-175.5 to read as follows:

§ 19-175.5 Carsharing parking pilot program. a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Carsharing organization. The term “carsharing organization” means an organization that operates a program in which access to a fleet of private vehicles is provided to members of the organization on an hourly or other short-term basis.

Carsharing vehicle. The term “carsharing vehicle” means a vehicle used by a carsharing member that is owned or leased and registered by a carsharing organization.

Designated parking space. The term “designated parking space” means a location that the department reserves for the exclusive use of a carsharing vehicle.

b. The department shall establish a carsharing parking pilot program that allows qualified carsharing organizations, as determined by the department, to apply for designated parking spaces on streets. Carsharing organizations shall provide any information requested by the department relating to their application to participate in such pilot program. Such pilot program shall have a duration of no less than two years, unless the department terminates or suspends the program on an earlier date; provided, however, the department shall notify the speaker of the council of such termination or suspension within seven days of such action and the reasons for such action.

c. As part of such pilot program, the department shall evaluate the impact of the program on the driving and car ownership habits of drivers who use carsharing vehicles that occupy parking spaces designated in connection with the pilot program. Carsharing organizations shall provide any information requested by the department relating to their operations undertaken in connection with their participation in the program.

d. No later than October 1, 2018 and each April 1 thereafter, until the completion of such pilot, the department shall submit a report to the speaker of the council regarding the progress of carsharing parking pilot program established pursuant to this section, which shall include, but need not be limited to: (i) the number of carsharing organizations that have applied, and the number of such organizations that have been accepted by the department, to participate in the pilot program; (ii) the number and locations of parking spaces designated for inclusion in the pilot program; (iii) a summary of any findings reached pursuant to subdivision c of this section; and (iv) for the report submitted no later than April 1, 2020, whether the department intends to implement a permanent carsharing parking program.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner may take such actions as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such date.
