The City of Oakland, California included in its carshare program a provision to allow flexibility in its on-street parking. The attached document is the free-floating zone parking permit and master residential parking permit terms and conditions.
From the introduction of the document:
The intent of the FFZPP is to facilitate car sharing within Oakland by establishing a permit that entitles a permitted car sharing vehicle to lawfully park in metered and unmetered spaces with duration limits of two hours or longer for up to 72 hours within a designated free-floating zone area. The concept for the FFZPP is based on the idea that Qualified Car Sharing Organizations should be able to pre-pay an estimate of meter fees for parking activity of point-to-point car sharing vehicles within a designated free-floating zone area. The estimate will be reconciled with actual parking activity after the term of the FFZPP.
The intent of the MRPP is to facilitate car sharing within Oakland by establishing a permit that entitles a permitted car sharing vehicle to lawfully park in all residential permit parking areas (RPP) areas for up to seventy-two (72) hours. The concept for the MRPP is based on the idea that car sharing vehicles should be entitled to the same on-street parking privileges of private automobiles. Because car sharing vehicles will rotate throughout the City, the vehicles will require access to all RPP areas.
