Zipcar is a member-oriented, car rental program that provides an alternative transportation option for people who may not have ready access to a car. Zipcars are rented on an hourly basis at $8 and maximum of $60 per day. This program is perfect for those people who need to run a few errands from time to time. ECU has worked with Zipcar to provide a discounted membership startup cost to faculty, staff and students of the ECU community. Zipcar helps our students save money through a reduction in the full-time upkeep of a personal vehicle as well as helps the environment since the available cars are hybrid, which reduce the carbon footprint. Zipcar has established partnerships with more than 200 universities and major cities across the nation and are available for anyone with a membership.
