Zipcar

Zipcar is the world’s leading car-sharing network, driven by a mission to enable simple and responsible urban living. Members can reserve any Zipcar vehicle in New York City or across the globe by the hour or the day, including the cost of gas, maintenance and insurance. An alternative to traditional car rental and car ownership, Zipcar offers the most comprehensive, most convenient and most flexible car-sharing options available in cities across the United States and around the world.
Zipcar is offering IDNYC cardholders a 50% discount on standard first-year membership. This offer is only valid for first-time Zipcar memberships, is non-transferable, and may only be used by the cardholder. Apply online on Zipcar’s website. Be sure to have your IDNYC identification number ready to take advantage of this offer. Discounts vary based on vehicle type and apply to weekday reservations, only.
All membership applications are subject to Zipcar’s approval process.

Starting in Summer 2018, the New York City Department of Transportation will begin its 2-year carshare pilot program, setting aside more than 300 parking spaces solely for Zipcar and Enterprise CarShare vehicles. To learn more, click here.

Zipcar Reservations

Once you become a member, you can reserve a Zipcar 6 different ways including online or in your iPhone. At the time of the reservation, a wireless signal is sent to the Zipcar. Just walk up to the reserved car, hold your Zipcard up to the windshield, and the doors and ignition will unlock. Your Zipcard will only open the car you've reserved during the time you reserved it, which means no one else can open your Zipcar during that time. The keys are inside tethered to the dashboard. Gas and insurance are included in the hourly rate. You just need to fill the tank using the Zipcar fuel card inside the car when it gets to ¼ full. When you're done, just return the Zipcar to its reserved parking spot.
