How Zipcar works
When you’re approved, we’ll send you a Zipcard in the mail.
The commuter membership gets you exclusive access to a Zipcar and parking spot, Monday-Friday. Apply here.
Drive your Zipcar whenever you want during the workweek. Use the dedicated spot throughout the week.

What types of cars can I drive?
Choose from cars to fit your needs or your mood—from compact sedans to larger cars or vans, we’ve got you covered on campus.
Is gas included?
Gas is on us! Need to fill up during your trip? Just use the gas card found behind the driver’s side visor. Every car should have at least ¼ tank to start (so kindly bring yours back that way, too.)
How many miles are included?
No matter where or how long you drive, 180 miles are included per day. Overages are billed at $.45 (or $.55 for premium cars or vans) per mile. Learn more.
How does Zipcar insurance coverage work?
All Zipcar members in good standing have third-party auto liability and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) or "no-fault" coverage. A $1,000 damage fee may apply which you can reduce or eliminate by buying an optional waiver. Learn more.
Wheels when you want them, by the hour or day, and only pay for the time you reserve.
