Zipcar Expands Car Sharing in the Washington, D.C. Area

Zipcar is expanding to provide additional 'wheels when you want them' to residents, businesses, visitors and students. In the last four months, Zipcar has added an additional 35 locations to better serve communities such as Logan Circle, Brookland and Capitol Hill. Zipcar is also adding dozens of cars to Wards 7 and 8, with new locations along Benning Road, Branch Avenue and Minnesota Avenue, so that residents in those areas have a convenient and cost-effective alternative to get around the District. Zipcar is also expanding along the major transit lines throughout the greater Washington, DC area. In addition to adding more cars in more places, Zipcar D.C. announced that construction is under way for a newly expanded downtown office. The larger space, located at 403 8th Street NW in the Penn Quarter, will allow Zipcar to host more on-site member appreciation events, give more members access to visit with questions or to join, and provide more working space for Zipcar’s D.C. employees. Construction is expected to be completed this summer.
