Zip Car Is Now on Campus

What is Zipcar? Zipcar is an on-demand car sharing service that gives students, faculty and staff access to wheels when they want them by the hour or by the day. Gas and insurance included. 

How does it benefit students? 
Zipcar saves students money. On average, members save about $600 per month compared to owning a car, which gives students and parents more money to put toward tuition, books and housing.  Members pay only for the time they use the vehicle, and have no responsibility for additional costs associated with car ownership, such as gas, insurance, parking, registration and maintenance. 

How does Zipcar benefit the university and environment? 
Zipcar reduces congestion and parking demand on campus. Studies have shown each Zipcar takes up to 15 personally owned cars off the road.  Zipcar reduces emissions. Studies have shown Zipcar members reduce their overall mileage by about 40 percent after joining, helping to reduce CO2 emissions. 

Check out the new Zipcars at the Welcome Back Picnic on August 28th at FSU's Lower Quad or Frostburg's Annual Block Party on September 7th on Main Street, Frostburg!

Zipcars are parked in the Performing Arts Center Parking Lot.
