Zip Car Rental
Many college students wonder if they will need a car on campus. In most cases, there are many alternative forms of transportation, so a car is not needed. An exception of course is when the student goes to a commuter school, or lives far enough off campus and there is not good public transportation.
One option for occasional car use is to rent a Zipcar, the new way to travel. These cars can be found at many colleges and universities and rented by the hour or day by students 18 and older. For more information, see Zip Car Rentals at Colleges and Universities.
