LAS VEGAS — Zipcar, which calls itself the world’s leading car-sharing network, arrived at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus and McCarran International Airport’s Rental Car Center last week, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Two vehicles, a Toyota Prius and Ford Focus, which can be reserved through iPhone and Adroid smartphone apps, are available on the UNLV campus for $7.50 an hour or $69 a day after paying a one-time $25 membership fee.

UNLV officials view car sharing as a sustainability project since most of the cars provided by Zipcar are low-emission, hybrid vehicles, and with more shared cars, parking capacity issues, a perennial problem at UNLV, would be eased, according to the report.

These new vehicles at UNLV come in addition to six Zipcars available at the McCarran International Airport, including a BMW 328i, a Mazda 3 Hatchback and a Toyota Prius.
