ZIPPING AROUND TORONTO

Zipcar, Inc., a car sharing network, is expanding its airport access to eight new airports in North America, including Toronto Pearson, bringing convenience, freedom and a little zip to air travel. The expansion gives Zipcar members on-demand access to nearly 10,000 vehicles in 20 cities, at more than 300 universities and now in 11 airports, including: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL); Austin/Bergstrom International Airport (AUS); Los Angeles International Airport (LAX); Palm Beach International Airport (PBI); Philadelphia International Airport (PHL); Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX); Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC); Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ). The addition of these eight airports comes on the heels of Zipcar’s launch at Newark Liberty (EWR), LaGuardia (LGA) and John F. Kennedy (JFK) airports last month. Nearly two out of three (64%) of respondents to a March 2013 Zipcar member survey indicated they were “likely”or “very likely”to use Zipcar at an airport (if available). A wide variety of Zipcars, including Mazda 3’s, Toyota Prius and Ford Focus models, are located in Zipcar-branded parking spaces adjacent to the Avis Car Rental pick-up facility at each participating airport. Zipsters can hit the road immediately after exiting a flight, without any paperwork, lines or extra fees, and enjoy additional time saving amenities such as EZPass readers (where available) for tolls. The Zipcars in airport locations can be reserved by all Zipcar members ages 21 and up, including residents of those areas near the airport locations, as well as those traveling to the airport. As with all Zipcar reservations, gas, insurance and 180 miles per day are included. Zipcar vehicles travel round trip, so require pick up and returns to the same location. The cost to reserve Zipcar vehicles in airport locations starts from $9-$12 per hour or from $69-$89 per day, depending on the location, type of vehicle and the plan of the member reserving the vehicle.
