Zipcar and Flexcar to Merge
Car sharing is a great way for us carless types to have easy access to wheels whenever we need them. I’ve been a Zipcar member for a little over a year now, and love its ease of use, with online & mobile booking, and availability all over the city. I also get to drive all kinds of cool cars (like Priuses and Mini Coopers)! Members also get to use cars in other cities, like New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Vancouver, Toronto and London.
It’s about to get a little better!
Today, Zipcar and Flexcar have announced their intent to merge (read the press release here). This is great for members of both services, for we now get better insurance and even MORE cars/locations to choose from! Flexcar also adds Los Angeles, San Diego, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to the cities a member can share cars within.
I’m pretty excited about this merger and hope it encourages more people to use car sharing!
