Car sharing – idea whose time has come
Car sharing is an idea whose time has come, especially for the museum dense University Circle neighborhood where parking and walking – especially in winter – can be problematic.
Car sharing arrives there with the Nov. 12 debut of Zipcar — a 24/7 transportation option for students and the local community. Two vehicles will be at University Circle Inc., 10831 Magnolia Drive, and two will be parked at the Ford Road Garage, 1980 Ford Road. Rates, which start at $7.50 an hour and $69 a day, include gas, insurance and 180 miles a day.
Sounds great for dropping the gang off for an exhibit or show, zipping downtown for an errand, then whipping back to pick them all up at the appointed time
Memberships, available to university students and local businesses and nonprofits, permit reserving online or with a Smartphone. Details and locations at Zipcar.
