Does the institution participate in a car sharing program, such as ZipCar or HourCar?:

A brief description of the program:

ESF, in partnership with SU, has participated in ZipCar since December 2007. Since then, students, faculty and staff from ESF have been taking advantage of the car-sharing program by self-reserving online one of the five available Zipcars—24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The five Zipcars are conveniently located on campus. Students, faculty and staff can join Zipcar for $35 a year and will gain access to Zipcars for $9 per hour, or $65 per day, with gas, insurance and 180 free miles, parking in the reserved spot and 24/7 roadside assistance included. New subscribers will receive $35 in free driving to use during the first month. Full details are available at Zipcar site: http://zipcar.com/su.

ESF, in partnership with SU, participates in CuseCar, a local not-for-profit community car share provider utilizing alternatively fueled vehicles. http://insidesu.syr.edu/2010/08/18/prius-plug-in-hybrid-vehicles/
