Glad you asked. It's a smarter way to get around the campus.

  • In neighborhoods, cities and airports across the globe.
  • Save hundreds over car ownership.
  • Choose from sedans, hybrids, vans and more.

Reserve icon


Book a Zipcar for as little as 1 hour or as long as 7 days.

Tap icon


Hold your Zipcard to the car's windshield—or tap the app—to unlock. Voila! It's all yours.

Drive icon


Hit the road. When you're done, park the car in its reserved spot and use your Zipcard or the app to lock up.
