OP-T2-37: Car Sharing
|0.25 / 0.25||
Does the institution participate in a car sharing program, such as ZipCar or HourCar?:
A brief description of the program:
Colorado State University (CSU) has forged a partnership with Zipcar Inc. to provide the campus with access to the world’s leading car sharing network. The environmentally friendly and cost-effective transportation option has vehicles placed in convenient areas around campus. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all students, faculty and staff members ages 18 and older, as well as members of the local community ages 21 and over.
Gas, insurance, reserved parking spaces, roadside assistance and up to 180 miles of driving per day are included in the regular hourly and daily Zipcar rates. Cars can be reserved for as short as an hour or up to four days.
Zipcar is an environmentally friendly transportation alternative; national studies have shown that each Zipcar shared takes at least 15 privately owned vehicles off the road. Zipcar has established partnerships with more than 230 universities. With parking at a premium on college campuses, and a growing interest in alternative transportation options, Zipcar provides an attractive substitute for bringing a personal car to campus.
