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

A brief description of the program:
There are currently eight vehicles allocated by Zipcar to the UC San Diego program fleet with an additional two vehicles at the Hillcrest Medical Center. These vehicles are all available to UC San Diego students, staff, faculty, and visitors for Zipcar car sharing. Hourly rate includes gas and insurance at no additional cost. Reservations can be made on-line or over the telephone. There are allocated parking spaces, these spaces are not permanent stations for Zipcars at UC San Diego, though locations for the Zipcar spaces are generally in place for multiple years. UC San Diego Transportation Services adjusts the locations on occasion in an effort to address demand. UC San Diego is also exploring the possibility of creating “pods” of vehicles so that vehicles are located on campus in such a way that two or more are placed in proximity to increase location awareness and availability for customers. Transportation Services is working with Zipcar to accommodate the growing demand.
