Does the institution participate in a car sharing program, such as ZipCar or HourCar?:
A brief description of the program:
As the student population grows at Virginia Tech and resources remain limited for additional on-campus parking, we have found a creative and innovative solution to the problem: U Car Share. Car sharing meets the needs of those who need a car occasionally, while being sensitive to the surrounding community and environment. Car sharing reduces the demand for parking and results in greater sustainability while maintaining individuals' mobility.
U Car Share vehicles are positioned for easy access to students, faculty, staff and the local community, and are now available on the Virginia Tech campus. U Car Share has provided six EPA SmartWay certified vehicles.
