Use Zipcar to Get Around
Zipcar is an on-demand car sharing service, which enables you to reserve a car online or by phone 24/7. Stanford affiliates enjoy discounted rates.
Free department memberships: Stanford departments can create a free departmental Zipcar account and bill department business trips to a PCard. This could be a convenient way to travel between SRWC and the main campus when necessary. When using the account to make reservations, employees can choose whether the trip is for department business or personal use.
Personal memberships: To sign up for a Zipcar membership for personal use, apply online through Stanford's Zipcar web page. All Stanford affiliates can join Zipcar for $15 for the first year — a $10 savings on the annual registration fee! In addition, Commute Club, can receive up to $102 a year in Zipcar driving credit. Please refer to our Using Zipcar at Stanford page for more details on applying.
Zipcar parking: Zipcars have designated parking spaces, so they must be returned to the same location where you picked up the vehicle. When not parked in its designated space, you will need to have a parking permit or pay for ‘Visitor’ parking if you park a Zipcar on the main campus. SRWC Zipcars should not park in main campus Zipcar spaces, since those spaces are reserved for specific Zipcar vehicles.
If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact us using our SRWC Comment Form. We especially want to hear if there are times you wanted to take a Zipcar, and it was unavailable. This will help us know if we need to increase the number of Zipcars available at the site.
