More Zip Cars Comes to Town




Zip Car is expanding in the Metroplex by partnering with the University of North Texas Denton Campus and the Dallas Campus to provide students, teachers and staff a smarter, greener way to get around at school, as well as nearby commuters, without having to drive from one side of town to the other.

Zipcar is a monthly subscription service that allows members to rent cars from one hour to seven days. The cars are parked in designated parking spaces. Members reserve a Zipcar in advance and have automated access using a card that works with the car's technology to unlock the door; the keys are already located inside. Alternatively, members can use Zipcar's Android or iPhone app to locate a Zipcar and unlock the doors.

Zipcar charges a one-time application fee, an annual fee and a reservation charge. Fuel, parking, insurance and maintenance are included in the price. Members must be either 18 or 21, depending on location, and have a valid driver’s license with a clean driving record.
