redefine campus mobility


Powered by Zagster, and backed by Zipcar, Zipbike is the first national, sponsored mobility solution designed for universities.

Zipbike bundles Zagster's proven bike-share platform with Zipcar's popular university car-sharing service to offer a single, simple solution to enhance a university's transportation network while reducing cost.

Zipbike helps campuses address transportation needs while reducing overall transit costs for both universities and students. By pairing shared bikes with shared cars, Zipbike offers a seamless way for students and staff to travel on and off campus.

bikes + cars = freedom

Relieve congestion & transit strain

Bike shares and car shares minimize personal vehicle use and ease demand on overburdened transit systems. Fewer cars reduces campus gridlock and improves air quality.

Save students money & hassles

Students who don’t bring cars to campus save around $20,000 over four-year enrollments, according to Forbes. Students who don’t own cars don’t face the burden of permits and parking tickets.

Reduce Parking Demand

Building a single new parking space in a structured garage costs on average $20,000 -$40,000 for a university. Fewer cars on campus frees up space and decreases parking-related woes.

Decrease theft & abandonment

College students have a 53 percent chance of losing bikes to theft. Bike sharing reduces theft and the need to manage abandoned bikes.
