Zipcar is the world’s leading car-sharing network and the largest provider of campus car-sharing programs. We are driven by a mission to enable simple and responsible urban living on college campuses, in cities and across the globe.

Joining and Eligibility

Any 18+ students or 21+ faculty, staff or community members can apply so long as they have a valid driver’s license. This includes those with international driver’s licenses, too! After the quick online application is completed, Zipcar runs a driving record check. Once approved, the applicant receives his/her Zipcard in a week and can begin making reservations. A new Zipster is born!

Environmental Impact on Campus

Zipcar gives students an easy way to get around without bringing a personal car to school, helping to create a sustainable transportation network on campus. Fewer personal cars on campus reduces traffic, congestion and CO2 emissions and frees up valuable space on campus that could otherwise be used for classroom buildings, science labs and athletic fields.

More than 30 percent of college Zipcar members leave their car at home after joining the service and another 40 percent are less likely to buy a car because of their Zipcar membership, according to a recent academic survey conducted by Zipcar and UC Berkeley.

  • Decrease in CO2 Emissions – Each Zipcar member reduces their CO2 emissions by up to 1,600 pounds per year
  • Increased Use of Other Mobility Options on Campus – 81 percent bike the same or more after joining and more than 86 percent walk the same or more

The Cars

Zipcar will provide three vehicles to be placed right in parking lot near Rice Hall. All Zipcars arrive new and outfitted with our wireless technology, which allows members access into the vehicles. They’ll also arrive branded, with a Zipcar co-pilot, and outfitted with toll passes and snow shovels, where needed. Cars in our fleet are fuel-efficient, fun and easy to drive.

Let's Get Zipping

Zipcar looks forward to working with Iona College to build a successful car-sharing program and offer convenient, low carbon footprint transportation options for students, faculty and staff as well as community members. Let’s get zipping!
