Zipcar has started its car-sharing service at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus. A Toyota Prius and Ford Focus are now available on campus by the hour or day for students, faculty and staff, says Zipcar.
"Zipcar and UNLV are bringing the next generation of students the next generation of mobility to their doorstep," said Katelyn Lopresti, general manager for Zipcar University. "With 'wheels when they want them' students can forget about the cost and hassles of car ownership and enjoy the excitement of going to school in an incredibly vibrant city."
UNLV students, faculty and staff can join Zipcar for $25, with rates starting as low as $7.50 per hour and $69 per day. Gas, insurance and up to 180 miles of driving per day are included, according to Zipcar.
"Zipcar's presence at UNLV is a continuation of our efforts to add convenient alternative transportation options for our faculty, staff and students," said Tad McDowell, director of UNLV parking services. "As more students choose to live on campus and as the UNLV community turns to mass transit for their commute, Zipcar provides the freedom and flexibility for those without a car on campus to get where they need to go."
Zipcar has established relationships with more than 350 U.S. universities, says the company.
