Zip to It
Car-sharing service adds convenient new Fort Worth location
Car-sharing transportation service Zipcar has expanded its accessibility in Fort Worth, with a new pickup and drop-off location: outside the Parkside So7 Urban Apartments at 900 Matisse Dr.
A subsidiary of Avis, Zipcar's mission is to enable simple and responsible urban living. It helps remove personally owned vehicles from the road, which reduces emissions, traffic, and congestion and allows for shorter commute times and more parking spot availability.
These sustainable, cost-effective wheels can be reserved 24/7 by all members, ages 21 and over (or 18-plus for students on Zipcar affiliated campuses), living in or traveling to the area. Low hourly rates include gas, insurance, a dedicated parking spot for easy pick up and return, and 180 free miles per day.
The Fort Worth addition joins a new location that debuted simultaneously in Deep Ellum in Dallas.
Two cars are available for Fort Worth drivers. Following the Zipcar tradition, they're nicknamed. There's a BMW 328i named Bratwurst and a Subaru Impreza named Shamika.
Zipcar came to TCU in 2012, with cars located on the north end of campus near Main Drive and the commons. In 2015, four cars were assigned for the University of Texas at Arlington. The company's network in Texas also includes programs in Austin, Houston, and Dallas, as well as universities in San Antonio.
