Zipcar has expanded its partnership with New York’s Metro-North Railroad (MNR) bringing its carsharing service to six additional MNR stations.

In February, Metro-North rolled out its “Ride2Drive” program, making Zipcars available at nine Hudson Valley stations along the Harlem, Hudson, and New Haven lines.

Now the program has expanded to an additional four East of Hudson stations and two West of Hudson stations:

- Harlem Line: Southeast

- Hudson Line: Irvington, Tarrytown, and Peekskill

- Pascack Valley Line: Spring Valley and Pearl River

Zipcar members now have access to a total of 26 vehicles at 15 Metro-North stations parked in dedicated parking spaces, according to the company. Each Zipcar reservation includes gas, insurance, maintenance, and 180 miles of driving per day.
