drive Zipcars by the hour

As part of its commitment to sustainability, the City of Chicago has partnered up with Zipcar to provide shared vehicles to staff based in Chicago. This program is intended to make operations more efficient and cost-effective, and at the same time reduce our parking footprint on Chicago’s crowded streets.


When walking, biking, or taking the bus or subway won't get you where you need to go, a Zipcar is there when you need it. So if you have field work in the Loop or a meeting in Evanston, all you need to do is reserve a vehicle on this website, pick it up from its location, and bring it back at the end of your reservation.
