Associated Students introduces Zipcar, a program for Cal State Northridge students to rent cars on an hourly basis. Individuals can rent the cars for as long as they need them, from hours up to days at a time. Renters must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license.
Cars used for the Zipcar program are all fuel-efficient vehicles and are all under three years old. Gas, insurance, maintenance and roadside assistance are all included in the hourly rate.
Individuals must sign up for a Zipcar account online at www.zipcar.com. Reservations for cars can be made over the phone or online. Members will receive a card, called a Zipcard, that will allow them entry into the vehicle designated to them.
The rental station will be located on the corner of Lassen St and Lindley Ave, near the dorms and adjacent to the shuttle stop. Zipcar will be open starting January 21st, the first day of the spring semester.
