Local car owners beware! Starting Monday, the city will be reserving about 300 parking spots throughout the five boroughs and reserving them for vehicles from car-share companies like Zipcar, according to The New York Times.

This is the first time the companies, which typically keep their vehicles in garages, will be allowed to store cars on city streets. Officials say making more vehicles available to be shared by New Yorkers could lessen their reliance on individual cars, reducing congestion and air pollution. “It is my job to try to provide the best options I can for all the travelers of New York City,” city Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg told the Times.  Zipcar and Enterprise are the two companies the city has selected for the pilot program.
