Zipcar Highland Ave & Central St, Somerville, MA02143
Zipcar brought car sharing to Cambridge about 11 years ago and has since become the global market leader. Zipcar owns…More cars and respective parking spaces; you join, you reserve the car, you drive it, then you return it. The company has grown, in part, because its mission is about sustainability - fewer cars on the road for less time, less fuel emission permeating our air.
Additionally, Zipcar has won numerous awards and has its own iPhone app. The company has found a huge customer-base in crowded city environments where parking is a costly hassle. Car sharing forces people to think twice about when it's really necessary to use a car. Somerville is home to over a dozen Zipcars, parked throughout the city. The company has cars in 32 states, Canada and the United Kingdom.
