Zip Car

Penn has contracted with Zipcar to provide members of the Penn community with the convenience of driving a car without the hassle of owning one. Zipcar, the world's largest car sharing service, offers over 30 different makes and models, which can be rented by the hour or by the day. Gas, insurance and up to 180 miles of driving is included with each 24-hour reservation.

You can get access to a Zipcar 24/7 right on campus and can register online. Vehicles are equipped with gas cards, E-ZPass™, iPod™ adaptors and can even be unlocked using your iPhone™.

Penn students, faculty and staff can join Zipcar for only $35/year and get $35 in free driving to use in the first month! Members age 18-20 can use dozens of Zipcar locations within a mile radius of Penn’s campus and hundreds more around Philadelphia. Members age 21 or older have access to thousands of Zipcars all around the world.
