Zipcar on Campus


No wheels to get to that Smith College mixer? Maybe you should rent a hybrid.

Whether you’re wheel-less or not, there’s a new option to consider when packing up for school. Zipcar, the world’s largest car-sharing service, is bringing its program to 15 additional universities this season, bumping up the count of Zipcar-available campuses to over 50, including Carnegie Mellon, Post, Yale and many, many more.

An eco-friendly alternative to keeping cars on campus, Zipcar offers top EPA rated cars like the Toyota Hybrid Prius and Honda Civic to program members 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (Insurance, gas, parking and maintenance are included in hourly/daily rates with no additional charge for members under 21.) By paying the annual fee, students and universities are reducing parking demand and traffic concerns… and saving money for more important things (like books, of course.)
