Zipcar is a convenient, eco-friendly way to get around on and off campus.
Zipcar is a car-sharing service that lets you use a vehicle only when you need it. Whether you’re just going to the store for an hour or taking a weekend road trip, Zipcar is a convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly option.
The Zipcar fleet at UB has a limited number of cars this fall semester, which will have an impact on getting a reservation. Zipcar apologizes for the inconvenience, and reports that a supply chain issue with computer chips is preventing them from replacing cars in the fleet. Zipcar is hoping for relief, and more cars for UB, later in the fall.
You can sign up for Zipcar online. Once you pay your annual fee, you can reserve a car by the hour or by the day. Your rate includes gas, insurance, a mileage allowance, reserved parking spots and roadside assistance.
Every Zipcar helps reduce the number of privately owned vehicles on the road, which means less traffic and a healthier environment for everyone.
You can sign up for Zipcar if you are a UB student, faculty or staff member ages 18 or older. UB departments can also use Zipcar for business, using an approved university P-Card to pay for the service. Please read the Zipcar departmental account policy for more information.
Zipcars are available 24/7 and are located in convenient spaces in high-demand areas of the North and South Campuses.
