Brooklyn residents could soon see fewer parking spaces, as New York City is considering taking away many street corner parking spots for its car share pilot program, CBS New York reported.

The program is set to turn 600 parking spaces city-wide into reserved spots for vehicles being used with services such as Car2Go and ReachNow.

As with most large, metropolitan areas, street parking in Brooklyn is already difficult to find. In a statement, city officials said that program will decrease the number of cars on the road, and thus decrease the number of vehicles fighting for a parking spot.

The New York City Care Share Pilot Program is set to begin in the spring.
