LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1015, Bloom. Parking: car share vehicles.
Existing law provides that the Vehicle Code is applicable and uniform throughout the state and in all counties and municipalities, and prohibits a local authority from enacting or enforcing an ordinance or resolution on those matters covered by the Vehicle Code unless expressly authorized by that code. Existing law authorizes local authorities to prohibit or restrict, by ordinance or resolution, the stopping, parking, or standing of vehicles on certain streets or highways, or portions thereof, during all or certain hours of the day. Under existing law, the local authority may also, by ordinance or resolution, give preferential parking privileges on designated streets to residents and merchants adjacent to those streets. The ordinance or resolution may also authorize preferential parking permits for members of organizations, professions, or other designated groups to park on specified streets if the local authority determines that the use of the permits will not adversely affect parking conditions for residents and merchants in the area. Existing law authorizes a local authority, by ordinance or resolution, to designate certain streets or portions of streets for the exclusive parking privilege of motor vehicles participating in a car share vehicle program or ridesharing program, as specified.
This bill would additionally authorize a local authority to, by ordinance or resolution, designate certain streets or portions of streets for the nonexclusive parking privilege of motor vehicles participating in a car share vehicle program or ridesharing program.

The ordinance or resolution shall establish the criteria for a public or private company or organization to participate in the program, and may limit the types of motor vehicles that may be included in the program. Under the car share vehicle program a car share vehicle or ridesharing vehicle shall be assigned a permit, if necessary, by the local authority that allows that vehicle to park in the exclusive or nonexclusive designated parking areas.
(b) If exclusive parking privilege is authorized, the ordinance or resolution described in subdivision (a) does not apply until signs or markings giving adequate notice thereof have been placed.
(c) A local ordinance or resolution adopted pursuant to subdivision (a) may contain provisions that are reasonable and necessary to ensure the effectiveness of a car share vehicle program or ridesharing program.
(d) For purposes of this section, a “car share vehicle” is a motor vehicle that is operated as part of a regional fleet by a public or private car sharing company or organization and provides hourly or daily service.
