Go for a drive

On campus, but don't have a car? Whether heading out of town for the weekend, picking up groceries or running a quick errand, Zipcar gets you "wheels when you want them." The car-sharing service is simple and easy to use. You can sign up to become a "zipster" online. All members receive a "zipcard," which gives you access to every zipcar you reserve, wherever you are. You can make a reservation online instantly and get behind the wheel within minutes of making a reservation. All you pay is an annual membership rate, and a low hourly or daily rate (includes gas, insurance and mileage) whenever you decided to use the service. There's even a special section for universities.
