Students, faculty and staff at NC State have another way to get around campus (or just about anywhere else they want to go): The Zipcar.
Zipcar is the world’s largest car-sharing network, and NC State is one of more than 225 colleges and universities partnering with the program.
You can join Zipcar for $35 a year, with membership entitling you to rent Prius hybrids and Scion XB crossovers for $8 an hour.
There are four Zipcars at NC State, located in the Dan Allen carriageway near the Cates/Dan Allen intersection and Bragaw Hall and on Dunn Avenue near the Coliseum parking deck.
If you sign up before March 1, you’ll receive free driving credits to use during your first month of service. The code for the promotion discount is backtoschool2011.
The Bulletin also reported this week on the Zipcar service and other ride-sharing options available on campus.
