Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, today announced a new partnership with the City of Huntsville to bring its “wheels when you want them” membership service to area residents, businesses, visitors and students.

A total of six Zipcars, available for reservation by the hour or by the day, are now located in easily accessible locations throughout the city in popular areas such as Huntsville City Hall, the Belk Hudson Lofts and the Artisan in Twickenham Square. The vehicles are parked in designated spots for convenient pick-up and drop-off and can be reserved in seconds on Zipcar’s mobile app, online or over the phone.

The Zipcar Huntsville fleet features a variety of makes and models, including a Honda CR-V named “Blossomwood,” great for a weekend getaway, a Honda Civic dubbed “Tommy” to zip around town or a Subaru Impreza called “Monte Sano” for a trip to the grocery store. Each reservation includes gas, insurance and 180 miles of driving per day, making it a great option for those looking for ways to save money on the high cost of car ownership.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Zipcar to Huntsville as part of the city’s growing transportation network,” said Vilaire Lazard, Zipcar general manager. “Zipcar gives members on-demand access to “wheels when they want them” with the simple tap of a Zipcard. And the best part is, car sharers are proven to increase their use of other mobility options like walking, biking and public transit after joining, leading to a healthier transportation system overall.”

The launch in Huntsville builds on a successful program at the University of Alabama, where Zipcar launched in 2009. With a number of students already using Zipcar, the company was eager to expand its presence off-campus to provide more Alabamians with convenient access to wheels where they live, work and play. Zipcar members can reserve and drive any one of the 13 vehicles located in Alabama as well as the 12,000 vehicles in the company’s global fleet.

“Zipcar provides another valuable transportation option for our citizens who are looking for new ways to commute,” said Mayor Tommy Battle. “Cyclists could bike to the office and still have access to a car to run errands. Senior citizens might decide to own one car and use a Zipcar for additional trips. College students would have access to a car when they need it, and business travelers would have the flexibility of a car on demand. We’re looking forward to seeing the creative ways our community will embrace the Zipcar model.”

Local businesses in Huntsville can benefit from Zipcar’s presence through the Zipcar for Business (Z4B) program, which offers discounted driving rates Monday through Friday. The Z4B program helps businesses save money, meet environmental sustainability goals and reduce parking requirements by providing employees with access to Zipcar for business needs and other uses.

“We are thrilled that Zipcar has selected Downtown Huntsville as the destination for another innovative transportation for residents, workers and guests in the city center,” said Chad Emerson, president and chief executive officer of Downtown Huntsville, Inc.

Prospective members can join the service instantly on Zipcar’s mobile app.
