Zip Zip! More Zipcars in the Bay and Now Chicago, Too



Zipcar, the car sharing service based in Cambridge, MA, announced recently that it will double its San Francisco fleet of Priuses, MINI Coopers, Mazdas, and BMWs, and start servicing the Chicago area as well. Zip Car will expand into new Bay Area neighborhoods as well as reinforce current pickup locations, many of which are located near public transit stations, part of a alliance with BART. This news comes shortly after Zip announced securing $20 million from General Electric’s financing division. Zip Car is the largest car sharing service in the country, with 60,000 key-card carrying members and 1,500 community vehicles. :: Green Car Congress
