Artspace Mt. Baker Lofts, a new Seattle transit-oriented development, has partnered with Zipcar to provide residents with two car-sharing vehicles.

These two vehicles are available for residents to reserve by the hour, says Zipcar. Rates start at $7.75 per hour and $73 per day and include gas, insurance and 180 free miles per day.

One of the goals of the project is to transform this neighborhood from a car-oriented environment into an "urban village" — where residents choose walking, biking or riding mass transit over cars, according Zipcar.

"Having access to Zipcar makes it possible — even easy — to live in the city without owning a car," said Carla Archambault, general manager of Zipcar Seattle. "It's why developers like Artspace are increasingly rethinking the need for onsite parking, and why communities are seeking ways to become more walkable and pedestrian/bike-friendly."
