Zipcar Celebrates 15 Years of Making Cities Better Places to Live
BOSTON (January 13, 2015) – When Zipcar first launched in Cambridge, Mass. 15 years ago, smart phones hadn’t been invented, social media sites didn’t exist and “sharing” was a concept relegated to toddlers and libraries. Today, thanks to the success of Zipcar and its members sharing thousands of cars in hundreds of locations around the world, cities have a wider variety of transportation options that reduce parking demand, save businesses, students and consumers money and decrease emissions and pollution.
Madrid, October 30, 2014: Zipcar, the world's leading car sharing network, today expands its footprint in Spain by launching its service in Madrid, under the Avancar brand. The expansion builds on the success of the existing Avancar service which has been available in Barcelona since 2005.
Paris, September 16, 2014: Zipcar, the world's leading car sharing network, today expands its global footprint to France, launching in Paris today. Founded in 2000 in North America, Zipcar’s entry into France widens its global network, giving its more than 870,000 members access to even more vehicles around the world. Today’s launch is a key step in Zipcar’s expansion across Europe, which already includes the United Kingdom, Spain and Austria.
