Recent enhancements to the Zipcar car-sharing program

The Zipcar program is a great option for those who carpool or vanpool to campus, but may need a car from time-to-time to travel during the day. Zipcars are one of the many forms of alternative transportation offered by Parking and Transportation Services.

We currently offer thirteen vehicles, two of which were added in late January to keep up with growing utilization. Our vehicle menu includes Ford Escape, Mazda 3, Toyota Matrix, Scion XD, Honda Civic Hybrid (new), Honda Odyssey (new) and Mini Cooper (new); all fuel-efficient and most have capacity for several passengers and cargo

Zipcars are housed at five locations across campus. All but one are on U-M bus routes for members convenience:

  • North Campus: Beal and Bonisteel (NC60 Lot)
  • Medical Campus: Zina Pitcher and Ann (M27 Lot)
  • Central Campus
    • State/Monroe/Oakland (S5 Lot)
    • Thompson/Madison/Packard (W16 Lot)
    • Hill St. (S8 Structure)
