Wouldn’t it be nice to ride the Metro to someplace near your destination and then pick up a car just steps from the train or bus? You could use the care to run errands, shop or reach any other business or social event not easily accessible via transit. Then simply return the car to the Metro station and you’re on your way back home.

Well, Metro offers car sharing at selected Metro stations and around the region at locations convenient to Metrobus. This is done in partnership with Zipcar. Car sharing is available in Metro Kiss & Ride lots at 39 of the 86 Metrorail stations (see station pages for locations) and many other neighborhood locations both near Metrorail stations without Kiss & Ride lots and elsewhere in the region.

How does it work?

Zipcar users pay an annual membership fee, then reserve and pick up a car when you need it. A range of vehicles is available. As a member you can pick the car that suits your needs at the time. You can pick a

  • compact car,
  • van,
  • pickup truck,
  • convertible,
  • or gas/electric hybrid.

See the Zipcar site for further details.
