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

A brief description of the program:

UC Davis participates in a carshare program provided by Zipcar and by providing a carshare program for departments to use for University business through UC Davis Fleet Services.

There are currently 8 Zipcar carshare vehicles in 3 locations on the UC Davis campus available for staff, students, faculty and community members to rent by the hour or the day.

In addition to the commercial carshare service provided by Zipcar, UC Davis Fleet Services operates the UC Drive program with 8 vehicles in 2 locations on campus available for UC Davis staff and faculty to rent by the hour for University business. Vehicles can be reserved online or at the UC Drive kiosks in the vehicle locations, and the program vehicles are available 24/7, which enables greater flexibility for department travelers beyond typical business hours. A third location with 3 additional vehicles will be in service by fall quarter (September) 2013. The UC Drive program uses the campus recharge system to allow departments to pay for hourly vehicle use providing an alternative to the use of departmental vehicles or personal vehicles for business use.
