UTA and Zipcar partnership

The University of Texas at Arlington’s Office of Sustainability rolls out a new car-sharing program with zipcar partnership on Wednesday, Feb. 4, 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.

“This is an innovative and cost-effective form of transportation that will help the entire UT Arlington community,” said Meghna Tare, director of the UT Arlington Office of Sustainability. “Based on our research, Zipcar will prove especially beneficial for our growing international population.”
