What is Zipcar?
King County employees may join Zipcar, the world’s largest car-sharing service. 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 about $10/hour, 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 you 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.
