Car sharing: a vital part of city living


Car sharing: a vital part of city living

In 2000, Zipcar envisioned a future where the number of people sharing cars outnumbered the people who personally own one. Twenty years later, Zipcar is the world's leading car sharing network, driven by a mission to enable simple and responsible urban living. While no one imagined the drastic changes the COVID-19 pandemic would bring to city life, we are closer to that future than ever before.


Zipcar shares a vision with cities and policy makers that mobility and access to a car should not be limited to those who can afford one. This report offers tangible proof that Zipcar continues to drive a sustainable and equitable future for urban living.


Together with our community of members and partners, Zipcar will continue to drive a sustainable and equitable future for urban living.
