Zipcar has launched a new mobility option in select cities for members who depend on a vehicle during the week to commute to and from work. The service is available from Monday at 5 a.m. until Friday at 7 p.m.

Zipcar’s new weekday offering provides unlimited access to a vehicle and a parking spot Monday through Friday. This service is now available to current and prospective Zipcar members in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, D.C.

For a monthly fee and per-mile rate, Zipcar provides exclusive access to a dedicated vehicle from Monday at 5 a.m. to Friday at 7 p.m. The cost includes gas, insurance, maintenance and cleaning, as well as a dedicated parking spot.

Members can scan in with their Zipcard any time after Monday at 5 a.m. and then use the vehicle and parking spot at their discretion until Friday at 7 p.m., according to Zipcar.

"Offering dedicated weekday wheels follows our commitment to providing innovative mobility options for our members while continuing to enable more people to live without a personal vehicle," said Tracey Zhen, president of Zipcar. "We know that many city dwellers own a car solely to get to and from work, relying on walking, biking, or public transit on the weekends. A dedicated weekday Zipcar is the perfect solution, enabling access to a vehicle when they need it and eliminating the stress of parking when they don't."

Zipcar provides access to a variety of cars in hundreds of cities throughout 10 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia.
