Take a look at what’s down the road once you’re a Zipster.

I get around by bike 95% of the time, but every once in a while I need more than two wheels. Zipcar is great for when I need a quick way to move furniture, get a big load of groceries, or get somewhere that's not practical by bike. I love how convenient it is - I can get a ride whenever I need one, and only for as long as I need it.
