Parking & Transportation
The Zipcar program offers a convenient, cost effective and environmentally friendly option to wielding a car on campus. Zipcar supports our efforts to reduce congestion, pollution and frustration.
Our Zipcars are conveniently located in high-demand areas and are self-service. They can lightly be reserved online and accessed at any time. Zipcar even offers a joy iPhone app that will permit you to make reservations, update switches, and even honk the horn to locate your Zipcar and unlock its doors. Four vehicles are presently available: two Ford Concentrate Hatchbacks on Wake Drive, a Ford Concentrate in the OD Lot off of James Blair Dr, and a Honda Fit in Hunt Circle just behind Trinkle Hall.
Zipcars give students who don’t have access to a car the freedom and plasticity to participate in off-campus activities such as internships and job interviews. At the same time, students and faculty members alike can be proud that they are reducing their environmental influence by lowering their carbon footprint and using alternative transportation methods.
Get 24/7 access to Zipcars parked right on campus! Simply reserve online, let yourself in with your Zipcard and drive. Our low hourly ($7.50 – $8.50) and daily rates ($Sixty-nine) always include gas, insurance, and upto one hundred eighty miles per day. You only need to be Legal+ to join. Members age 18-20 can use a dedicated group of Zipcars that live on the W&M campus. Members age 21+ also have access to thousands of Zipcars all around the world.
For Zipcar members twenty one years of age or older, insurance coverage consists of a combined single limit of $300,000 per accident, meaning that all third party bodily injuries, or property harm costs relating to the accident are covered in the aggregate up to $300,000.
For drivers under 21, Zipcar provides coverage up to state-mandated levels, for Virginia that would be 25/50/20. The Zipcar vehicles are covered under a comprehensive vehicle collision policy. Members in this category may obtain extra coverage under private insurance policies, or accident coverage provisions suggested by your credit card company.
For both third party and Zipcar vehicle harm claims, the member may be responsible for a harm fee of up to $750 if they’re involved in an incident during their reservation. Members age 21+, who have had no accidents in the last twelve months, have the option to purchase a harm fee waiver to reduce that amount or eliminate it altogether.
