As much as we love biking (and we really, really love biking), there are certain times when you simply need a car. The problem is, if you’re not a car owner this can often amount to the awkward begging of friends for a ride.
Well, say goodbye to unnecessary groveling, because Zipcar is providing students with an affordable way to get around Eugene! Zipcar has partnered up with University of Oregon to provide affordable prices to the student population, allowing you to join for only $15.
Oh, and did we mention gas and insurance are included? Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?
How does Zipcar work?
Once you’ve successfully joined, you’ll receive your Zipcard, the key (both figurative and literal) to unlocking cars, vans, and trucks the country over.
Reserve a Car
Reserving is incredibly simple and can be done either online or on your phone.
Tap your Card
Approach your Zipcar and hold your zipcard to the windshield, thus unlocking the car!
With that done, you now are free to drive around! When your time is up just return your car to the same reserved parking spot.
Where to Pickup your Zipcar
Zipcar has several accessible locations around campus! Below are the locations you can pick up/drop off your vehicle.
If you’re planning on moving out (or moving in) in the near future, Zipcar is an excellent option to help lessen your burden come moving day. After all, those boxes aren’t going to carry themselves across town!
A you can see, Zipcar is a simple, affordable, and convenient option to travel around Eugene and beyond. So the next time you’re looking to make a trip to Portland, consider trying a Zipcar!
