Today, Zipcar announced a new partnership with Miami-Dade County to add Zipcars to five Metrorail stations, providing transit riders with on-demand access to vehicles parked at train stops.

Ten Zipcars, including a Ford Focus named “Semester” and a Toyota Prius named “Paddy,” are available for reservation by the hour or by the day in easily accessible locations along the green and orange lines of the following five Metrorail Stations:

  • Vizcaya Station
  • Coconut Grove Station
  • Palmetto Station
  • Hialeah Station
  • Earlington Heights Station

“Miami-Dade County already has ride-sharing services in place throughout the County, and now we’re making car-sharing that much more accessible,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “What this means is that our transit riders can leave their cars at home, ride our system, and if they need a car for anything in between, there will be Zipcars available to reserve.  By adding Zipcars to our Metrorail stations, this option will help close that first and last mile gap.” 

The addition of Zipcars compliment to the Metrorail and other local transportation options and increase the number of sustainable mobility options throughout Miami-Dade County, while in turn reducing personal vehicle ownership, traffic, congestion and CO2 emissions.
