Zipcar launches in the City of Lakes; Minneapolis becomes Zipcar's 21st major metro market

Zipcar, Inc. with the support of Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, announced the expansion of Zipcar's car sharing network to the City of Minneapolis. With this launch, Minneapolis becomes Zipcar's 21st major metropolitan market.

The new Zipcar program will
provide the Minneapolis community with access to the world's leading car sharing network with 40 vehicles located in convenient locations throughout the city, including Dinkytown, Downtown, Loring Park, Northeast, North Loop and Seven Corners. Zipcar has offered car sharing on the campus of University of Minnesota since 2005, where it has been extremely well-received by students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the local community. Zipcar plans to continue to expand operations throughout additional areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul this year, including working with City of Minneapolis officials to establish on-street parking spots.

"I'm very excited to welcome Zipcar to Minneapolis; their expansion in our city is great news for people who want to spend their money on things other than owning a car," said Mayor Rybak.
