Car Sharing is a model of car rental where you can rent a vehicle for a short period of time, often by the hour. It provides instant access to a network of cars throughout the city, 24 hours-a-day, paying-per-trip, without commitment or inconvenience.
Allston Brighton TMA promotes carsharing as an alternative to driving because it allows you to commute car-free during the week and rent a car by the hour only when you need it, thereby reduce congestion on the roadways while also saving on parking costs! Reasons you may find a car useful during the day include: to attend an off-site business meeting or an event where you need to haul extra equipment or materials to, or to go to a doctor’s appointment.
Started over a decage ago Zipcar has become a leader in carshsharing, with over 1,000 vehicles in the greater Boston area and more than 6,500 vehicles throughout the United States, Canada, and England. Allston Brighton TMA members can qualify for discounts through the TMA’s Zipcar for Business account.
