Car Sharing & One Way Car Sharing in Boston

A smarter way to drive in Boston

Unlock over 1,000 cars in the city. Reserve by the hour or day and run errands, visit friends, or venture out on a road trip. Choose your car and choose a route. From Somerville to Seaport, Downtown to Dorchester, or Brighton to…anywhere.

There’s also the newest flexible Zipcar, with cars that go both ways—one-way and round trip—with unlimited reservation extensions and guaranteed parking on both ends. (Yep, really.)

Shopping on Newbury Street? Spending the day on Castle Island? Picking someone up from Logan? Get the ins and outs of membership and hit the road.
