Z is for Zipcars Can Replace Your Car

Consider driving a Zipcar.† Zipcars are a car-sharing program that allow you to drive without car ownership. Zipcars are starting to make a difference: Every Zipcar replaces an estimated 15 privately-owned vehicle. From an environmental standpoint, this reduces reliance on fossil fuels.

What other “Z”-things can you do to protect the earth?

As a big city walker, and a fan of public transportation, I very rarely need to use a car. But when I do, I use Zipcar. The hassle of waiting on line to do all of the paperwork that's required to rent a car is done only once - then any time you need the car, you just reserve one and go and get it without any hassle. And reserving it can mean that when you decide on a whim that you want to use one, you can reserve it a minute before you go to get it. you can't get easier or more energy efficient that that!

What a fantastic idea!
I am sure the car dealerships would not be impressed though!

I really wish we had this out in the suburbs. Oh, well, I'll stick to riding my bike a few days a week.

Not practical for me. $66 (or $72 on weekends) per day is a little too expensive. I can get a car from Enterprise for less than that, and if I use the right credit card the credit card company picks up the insurance. With unlimited mileage instead of only 180 miles.
