DART, Zipcar partnership adds vehicles at rail station

Posted on February 5, 2015

Zipcar and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) have teamed up to add two Zipcars along the transit line at the Mockingbird Station in an effort to help residents, students, businesses and visitors to get around by combining DART and Zipcar trips to explore the greater Dallas area.

The new Zipcars now offer transit riders a trusted option for “wheels when you want them” along their transit trip. The availability of Zipcar allows members increased access to these communities and encourages the use of public transportation by providing a cost-effective and convenient travel option for transit riders whose destination is not easily reached by other means from the DART station.

“The Zipcar connection helps make DART a more convenient option for customers needing a way to start or complete their trip,” said Nevin Grinnell, DART VP, marketing and communications. “We are looking forward to further enabling residents and visitors get out and explore the area.”

Zipcar launched in Dallas in September of 2014 with 25 vehicles. Since then the program has grown to more than 40 Zipcars, including a wide variety of makes and models, from BMWs, to hybrids and pickups, making it easy to select the right vehicle for any trip.

Zipcars can be reserved on Zipcar’s mobile app, online or over the phone. The new Zipcar vehicles are available for reservation 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Rates start as low as $8 per hour and $69 per day and include the cost of gas, a reserved parking spot, insurance, roadside assistance and up to 180 miles per day.
