City of Tucson’s Park Tucson Announces Car Share Program

The City of Tucson and Park Tucson are partnering with Zipcar to bring car-sharing to Downtown Tucson for the first time through a one-year pilot program. One Zipcar vehicle, which is now available for use, will be parked in a designated parking space in front of the Historic Train Depot off of Toole Avenue near Fifth Avenue.

Zipcar will give a convenient “on-demand” alternative to drivers in downtown Tucson. Access is available 24/7, with rental by the hour or the day, on a self-service basis through Zipcar’s mobile application. Every reservation comes with gas, insurance, maintenance and a parking spot. Plus, each Zipcar takes up to 13 personally owned cars off the road, leading to a cleaner, greener city.

The Zipcar location is convenient nearby hotels, apartments, student housing and employment centers in the Downtown and Fourth Avenue business and arts districts, as well as neighborhoods such as Armory Park and Iron Horse. The new downtown Zipcar will also be near other forms of transit such as the Amtrak station, the Tugo bike rental station, the Rondstadt Transit Center and Sun Link Streetcar.

Zipcar is very easy to use, just download the app or go online to zipcar.com/tucson and set-up a membership account. There are accounts for individuals, students and businesses.
