Zipcar is a convenient, eco-friendly way to get around on-campus or off-campus. When you’re done, simply park the car in its reserved spot and use your Zipcard or the app to lock up.
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.
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.
