Zipcar has signed contracts with over 100 colleges and universities to date and will continue to launch its carsharing service on campuses throughout the fall.

Currently, Zipcar now operates on more than 475 campuses in North America, according to the company.

New universities include Campbell University, Carleton University, Clemson University, Savannah State, Shaw University, Trinity University, University of Tampa and Wichita State University.

"Zipcar continues to be the leader in providing universities with a convenient, affordable and sustainable transportation option, and our goal is to be operating on over 500 campuses this year," said Kaye Ceille, Zipcar president. "Universities are often like small cities in how they experience parking challenges. With each Zipcar eliminating the need for up to 15 personally owned vehicles, we are able to reduce congestion and CO2 emissions on participating campuses."
