The numerous mobility options available to modern commuters make it easier than ever to get by without owning your own car. Excellent transit, smart ride-hailing services, and expanding bicycle infrastructure all provide accessible ways to navigate the city. But sometimes, you just need a car of your own for a little while. That’s where car-sharing programs like Zipcar help fill the gaps in 21st-century urban mobility.
Zipcar is one of the largest and most well-known car-sharing services in the world, with over 1 million users and more than 12,000 vehicles. With shared cars available in most major metro areas, Zipcar plays an important role in the transportation spectrum, allowing for an easier transition to a car-free or car-lite lifestyle by providing short-term access to vehicles when needed.
As part of our ongoing mission to be the most comprehensive hub for commuter transportation and management, RideAmigos is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Zipcar to give commuters easy access to shared vehicles right alongside all other available transportation options.
Our commuter trip planner now displays all local Zipcars and makes it easy to plan trips to and from Zipcar locations. Users can also click through to get more information about Zipcar, including how to sign up if they aren’t already members.
Zipcar integration is standard on all RideAmigos platforms where Zipcars are available in the region. Including Zipcars directly within our platform makes RideAmigos an even more complete solution for empowering commuters with smart, accessible mode options, and makes Zipcars easier to find and use as part of a modern urban lifestyle.
