Zipcar

What is Zipcar?

King County employees join Zipcar, the world’s largest car-sharing service, for OVER HALF OFF.  With a variety of reliable vehicles parked in designated spots around the city, you can have the right kind of wheels when you want them. Reserved via your smartphone or online, Zipcars cost approx. $10/hr, depending on the vehicle, including gas, insurance, and 180 miles of driving. Go where you like, do what you like and return when you’re done.  It’s like owning a car without all the yucky parts!

Smart mobility is about having the right wheels for the task, so whether you’re entirely car-free, car-lite, or simply need a different type of vehicle for an hour or two, Zipcar’s fleet hosts an array of vehicle types to suit your needs. Members can conveniently reserve their choice of sedans, trucks, hybrids, SUVs, cargo vans or even luxury cars. Activate your exclusive membership any time at www.zipcar.com/kcmetro and use promo code SEAKCMETRO10 for a FREE hour of driving.  Zipcar waives the application fee for KC employees ($35 savings) and charge only $35/yr for membership (vs $70).
