Car sharing is changing the way millennials get around, and the way they think about car ownership. This program is valuable for students without access to personal vehicles, and provides the added benefit of avoiding the financial costs associated with car ownership such as insurance and maintenance. It encourages and supports multi-modal communities by providing an additional transportation option and demonstrating that “mobility” in a city does not require personal vehicle ownership.
Car sharing reduces vehicle miles traveled and motivates to walk, cycle and take buses and trains, while decreasing dependence on fossil fuels and reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. Car sharing can also help reduce congestion and pollution.
UT Arlington offers a car-sharing program as part of its commitment to creating a more sustainable campus for students, faculty and staff.
Zipcar, the world’s leading car sharing network, is open to those over 18 years of age and who have been licensed for at least one year (domestic and international). Students, faculty or staff may join the membership program for $25, then pay $7.50 per hour or $69 a day to reserve one of four vehicles parked on campus. The cost includes gas, insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, wireless technology, and other features.
