Special Spring Zipcar Promotion

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Dan Henderson, Interim Director, Transportation and Parking Services

Zipcar, a membership-based car rental program providing self-service access to vehicles on campus, 24/7, has a special Spring promotion right now for new members only. Twenty-three cars are located throughout campus and can be rented at costs starting at $5.50 an hour, with gas and insurance included. Sign up today with the code UCSCFREE! to get a free membership for a year, plus $25 in driving credit. After you sign up, enter the code ZIPSPRING2019 for an extra $10. This is about 7 hours of free driving. If you’re not satisfied with the service, you can cancel it at any time. Zipcar can be a great option for those who need to make occasional trips out of town or local trips, such as getting groceries or getting to the beach!  Join today!


Finally, on May 15 – 22, remember to Vote Yes on Transit! – Yes on 73! at elections.ucsc.edu.  

Just like Zipcar, this measure helps reduce parking demand on campus and also to meet sustainability and carbon neutral goals. Should it fail, service levels for both METRO and Campus Transit will continue to be reduced or eliminated.


Thank you in advance for your support!
