The city of Philadelphia has found a new way to cut expenses by eliminating vehicles from its city fleet. However, many city employees still need to get around sometimes. They've decided adopt the car-sharing model and they put out a request for bids. It's been announced that ZipCar has been awarded a new contract to provide car-sharing services for municipal employees. Philadelphia has already eliminated 330 vehicles from its fleet over the last 4 years and this new deal will expand on that. The ZipCar contract starts on July 1 for a year and may be extended for another three years. ZipCar is offering hybrid vehicles in Philadelphia from $6/hour.
