City Car Pools and Hybrid Engines

Fine Gael councillors on Dublin City Council were shown a hybrid car which is used to pool car resources in cities. People join a car pool and use the car when needed by paying a time and distance charge. The system is
currently used by Cork City Council and has saved that council a large amount of money. The car is on the move frequently whereas users use it relatively infrequently. A smart card lets the driver into the car and the ignition card or key is inside. The car is tagged electronically and the
system can let you know where is the nearest available vehicle.
