SU introduced Zipcar – the world’s largest provider of cars on demand by the hour or day – in December 2007. Since then, students, faculty, and staff from SU have been taking advantage of this car-sharing program by self-reserving (through online and mobile devices) one of the 22 Zipcars on campus – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
