Zipcar has entered into a partnership with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to provide vehicles for hourly or daily reservations at 10 Metro park-and-ride locations.

This partnership would help provide Los Angeles transit customers with more transportation options and improve first mile-last mile connectivity to Metro stops.

Twenty Zipcars will be available, two at each of the 10 locations, according to Zipcar.

"We're helping Angelenos stay on the move by offering more options to get where they need to go,” said Eric Garcetti, Los Angeles mayor and Metro board chair. “Our pilot Zipcar partnership carries on our commitment to extend the reach of our Metro Rail system by making it more convenient to travel the last mile."

Membership starts as low as $7 per month, and members can choose vehicles such as sedans, hybrids, luxury vehicles and cargo vans.

"For years, Zipcar has served as a convenient way to get around Los Angeles, and now, with this partnership with Metro, Zipcar can also serve as a way to get out and explore beyond the city limits," said Dan Grossman, Zipcar regional vice president. "The partnership with Metro allows our members to have access to more cars in even more places making it easier than ever to live car-free or car-lite."
