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

A brief description of the program:

Tufts students, faculty and staff who are 21 years of age or older can join Zipcar for $25 per year (50% off the usual annual rate).

Students, faculty and staff pay no application fee, no monthly minimum, and no membership deposit. You can reserve via phone or internet. Hourly charges of $7.00 -$11.00 cover all insurance, maintenance, and gas costs.

Departments can set up a business account to access reduced rates during business hours.

Under arrangement with ZipCar, all 4 Zipcars available on the Tufts Medford campus are hybrids vehicles.
