Car Share

Two Parked Zip Cars

What is Car Share?

Car share allows people to rent a car for short trips - like to the grocery store - and pay less money. Car share vehicles are available to reserve and rent 24 hours a day and can be rented by the hour or day. The rentals generally include fuel and insurance costs.

ZipCar in Eugene

Zipcar car share provides a flexible option for errands, appointments and more. Rent one for grocery shopping or longer trips to explore Oregon. Learn more about pricing and access here. To get started:

  • Apply online with a valid driver's license. Most people are approved instantly and can book a trip within minutes.
  • Book a round trip car by the hour or day. Use our app to unlock and lock during your trip. They'll also send you a Zipcard.  
  • When you're done, park the car in the same location you picked it up from, then end the trip with the app.
