ZipCar Finally Comes Downtown!

I've been waiting for this for quite some time. ZipCar is finally coming to Downtown San Jose. This gives Downtown San Jose residents an alternative to owning a car. For those that can get by with mostly public transit or biking, this is the perfect solution. Why deal with all the hassles of car ownership (car payments, insurance, registration, parking, gas, etc.) if you can walk down the street and rent a car whenever you need for $8/hr. It's a brilliant idea and has already been very successful in cities all across the US.

They are starting off with 12 cars in 6 Downtown areas, but I'm sure this will grow very quickly. Fore more information, check out the source link below or click here for the ZipCar website.

ZipCar Locations:

  • East Santa Clara Street/North 4th Street (Chevron)
  • South Market Street/West San Carlos Street
  • South 2nd Street between East San Fernando Street and East San Carlos Street
  • South 2nd Street between East Santa Clara Street and East San Fernando Street
  • South 4th Street/Paseo de San Antonio (Colonnade garage)
  • South 3rd Street between East San Carlos and East San Salvador
