ZipCar gaining popularity in Ann Arbor

Last October the University of Michigan teamed up with ZipCar to offer the car-sharing service for staff and students at the Ann Arbor School. There are currently six cars available at three different campus locations around town and the service has been growing in use ever since. The Ann Arbor News has an interview with a U-M representative about the program.

So far students have been the main users of the service. Unfortunately their use is limited because the insurance company requires users to be twenty-one and older. Many of the students at U-M fall below that threshold and the university is actively working with the insurance company to lower that limit. Check out the interview at the Read link.
