It’s been close to two decades since our founders, Robin Chase and Antje Danielson, sat in a café in Cambridge, Massachusetts and decided to bring the European car-sharing idea to North America. Once the wheels were in motion, it was only a matter of time before some major changes helped grow our little car-sharing company into the world’s leading car-sharing network. Today, thanks to a member-driven user experience, a focus on innovative technology, and an amazing team of hands-on car-sharing enthusiasts, we are redefining the way the world thinks about alternative transportation.
Car sharing seems like a simple enough idea, but there’s a reason Zipcar has become the leader of cars on demand. It’s not just about fewer cars and reducing congestion and pollution; it’s about finding sustainable solutions. This idea is bigger than all of us, and we’re committed to our mission: to enable simple and responsible urban living.
