New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) and Zipcar have teamed up to offer car-rental service at five NJ Transit locations.
The new partnership will extend the reach of NJ Transit by enabling customers to use a combination of rail service and rental car to reach their desired destination.
The pilot program will kick off with a weekend road trip contest that includes free accommodations at a luxury bed and breakfast.
Zipcar enables members to reserve a vehicle online or by phone and pick it up at a reserved parking location of the driver’s choice. Members are given an access card, called a "Zipcard,” which will open the vehicle at the time of the reservation and also serves as the ignition key. Rental includes insurance, a gas card and reimbursements for typical car maintenance needs.
