Zipcar comes to UW-Tacoma

Zipcar is a green-ish concept that actually makes sense for a lot of people - you can rent a eco-friendly car for a couple of hours, relatively cheaply.

It's a concept that now has come to Tacoma. If you're a University of Washington-Tacoma student.

UW-T has signed on with Zipcar, and as of today students, faculty and staff can pay the $25 annual fee and then fork over seven bucks an hour or $66 a day to drive either Honda Insight hybrid or a Ford Focus.

"We look forward to partnering with Zipcar in helping our students, staff and faculty reduce their cost of living and help relieve parking congestion on campus," said Jennifer Burley, employee transportation coordinator at UW Tacoma in a press release. "Zipcar's car-sharing service also promotes the use of alternative forms of transportation to and from campus, an additional environmental benefit." 

Gas, insurance, reserved parking spots, up to 180 miles of driving per day and roadside assistance are included in the hourly and daily Zipcar rates. Cars can be reserved for as little as an hour or for multiple days.

This is such great news, I am really surprised they're only starting with two cars. I hope the demand soon shows that we can use more than that downtown!

Angela, community members who belong to Zipcar can use the cars, too. See longer story at UW Tacoma's website at www.tacoma.uw.edu or http://bit.ly/o2p7gX.
