Zipcar has partnered with the city of Breckenridge, Colo., to bring its carsharing service to area residents, businesses, and visitors.

Seven Zipcars — including a Ford Explorer named “Eddy,” a Ford Escape named “Titanium Trail,” a Ford Focus named “Huckleberry,” a Subaru Crosstrek named “Carlton,” a Subaru Impreza named “Ullr,” a Honda CRV named “Darlene,” and a Jeep Renegade named “Woodchuck” — are available for reservation by the hour or by the day with gas and insurance included.

The vehicles are parked in designated spots throughout Breckenridge for convenient pick-up and drop-off and can be reserved through Zipcar’s mobile app, online, or over the phone, according to Zipcar.

“I'm excited that Breckenridge has partnered with Zipcar to offer shared vehicles for our residents and visitors to our community,” said Breckenridge Mayor Eric Mamula. “We’re proud of our commitment to programs and initiatives that are environmentally conscious and also make life easier for Breckenridge residents and visitors alike.”

The official launch in Breckenridge builds on Zipcar’s carsharing program in Denver, where more than 100 Zipcars are available in nearly 40 locations in the greater Denver area.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Zipcar to Breckenridge as part of the town’s growing transportation network,” said Nicole Dalmy, Zipcar’s general manager. “Our on-demand carsharing service offers instant access to a vehicle for Breckenridge’s residents and visitors. By using shuttles and buses to get to Breckenridge — and Zipcar once they get here — visitors can help reduce traffic and congestion in Breckenridge.”
