WVU is offering a short-term rental car sharing program called Zipcar. Zipcar is available 24/7 to provide students, faculty, and staff with a great method of alternative transportation. As part of our WE GO! campaign to promote alternative transportation, Zipcar vehicles are conveniently located on on both the Evansdale and Downtown Campuses.

Two cars will be located on the Evansdale Campus in the loop in front of Bennett Tower, while an additional three will be located downtown. On the Downtown Campus, two cars will be stationed on Maiden Lane in front of Stalnaker Hall (beside the Mountain Lair) and another will be located in Sunnyside on the corner of First and Grant street (by Honors Hall).

The cars are only $8 per hour rented or just $66 for an entire day during the week or $9 per hour or $72 during the weekend. Gas and insurance are included in this low price so there is no need to worry about filling the tank when your done! There is an annual $35 registration fee for for becoming a registered Zipster.
