Zipcar now offered at this Atlanta college

Zipcar is now available at Atlanta Metropolitan State College.

The short-term rental "car sharing" service recently announced its partnership with the south Atlanta college. One car, a Ford Focus Hatchback named “Jucean,” is available for use 24 hours a day.

The car can be reserved for hours or multiple days on the website or mobile app. It will have a designated parking spot in the student center's red lot, and is available for students, faculty and staff ages 18 and older.

Other "members of the local community" can use it too, if they're over 21, Zipcar said.

According to the news release:

"AMSC members can join for $15, with rates starting as low as $7.50 per hour and $69 per day. After the first year, members will pay an annual membership fee of $25. Gas, maintenance, insurance, and up to 180 miles of driving per day are included in Zipcar rates. 

Zipcar is available on more than 600 colleges and universities across North America, including metro Atlanta campuses such as Georgia Gwinnett College. Zipcar grew its local presence in 2013, when it opened a location at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and added more cards to MARTA stations.
