Cascade Aids Project

Cascade Aids Project

In support of Ride4Cap, Zipcar Portland is donating the use of seven (7) vans to the CAP team, but we’re challenging riders to join Zipcar and support CAP even more. CAP and Zipcar are asking for fifty (50) riders or their supporters to sign up for a Zipcar membership.  And the offer to sign up is the best Zipcar has available.  Join at for just $25 per year (for life), $0 application fee AND when you enter the Promo Code:  CAPRIDE13PDX you get $50 in FREE Driving Credit. Want to support CAP even more?  Turn around and donate that $50 in driving credit back to CAP for future use.  Just email Zipcar at with your Zipcard number and let us know how much driving credit you’d like to donate.
