If you bike, hike, carpool or take public transportation, you can use campus Zipcars for short personal or business-related trips. See how Zipcar car-sharing works.

Driving and Giving

Get a jump on holiday tasks and support your community at the same time! Each time you reserve a Honda Zipcar on campus between Nov. 9–16, 2018, Zipcar will donate $1 to the leading, national hunger non-profit organization to help those in need.
