Zipcar has announced the expansion of its ONE > WAY carsharing program to Denver, Philadelphia and Los Angeles.

Launched as a beta in Boston last year, ONE > WAY enables members to take on-demand one-way trips with the flexibility to choose a parking spot at both the pick-up and drop off locations.

A select number of ONE > WAY vehicles will launch in each of the three cities, allowing members to travel between locations, such as airports, along transit lines and in key downtown areas, according to Zipcar. Similar to the program's launch in Boston, ONE > WAY locations and vehicles will be added as demand increases.

"We're thrilled with the results of our ONE > WAY program in Boston and are excited to expand the service to more people in more places," said Kaye Ceille, Zipcar’s president. "Our members routinely tell us that they love the sense of confidence that comes with our round-trip service coupled with the on-demand flexibility of ONE > WAY."

Additionally, ONE > WAY continues to expand its program in Boston by adding 50 more vehicles. Now, there will be a total of 250 ONE > WAY vehicles in Boston, according to the company.

Zipcar's ONE > WAY fleet consists exclusively of Honda Fits. Zipcar pods in expansion cities will contain both ONE > WAY and round-trip vehicles. All ONE > WAY vehicles feature specially branded exterior graphics to easily distinguish them from round-trip models, according to Zipcar.
