Zipcar announced today its partnership with the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) and Whistlestop to provide vehicles at the Whistlestop parking lot in San Rafael, Calif., next to the soon-to-open San Rafael Downtown Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) station. Access to Zipcars will provide residents with more transportation options, reduce traffic congestion, alleviate parking demand and help public transit users get to their destinations. The new Zipcars at Whistlestop will help with mid-day trips for workers that ride the SMART train and choose to leave their car at home and provides a new way to get around for visitors and residents. TAM Executive Director Dianne Steinhauser noted, “This fits perfectly with TAM’s work to expand mobility options in Marin. We are pleased to bring together this unique partnership combining efforts from the public, private and non-profit sectors to provide a car-share service at such a great location.” Zipcar has made a car-free and car-lite lifestyle possible and convenient in the Bay Area since 2005 and this partnership will continue to give area residents, businesses and visitors even more mobility options while helping the city alleviate parking demand and reduce CO2 emissions.
