ZipCar expands into two new locations in Brooklyn

Car sharing service Zipcar has expanded again this time adding two new Brooklyn, NY locations from which members can get a car when they need one. The crowded streets of New York are probably one of the best possible locations for Zipcar service. Not having to deal with the hassle of trying to find a place to park everyday will probably be a great incentive to people who only have need of a car occasionally.
The two locations in the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill areas of Brooklyn will start off with five cars each. Ten more cars will be added as the service ramps up and gains popularity. Residents of the Fort Greene area actually got a petition with 179 signatures of people interested in the services which they submitted to Zipcar to convince the company to set up shop in the neighborhoods. The available vehicles will include Mini Coopers, Priuses and pickup trucks.
