Our mission: To enable simple and responsible urban living

We envision a future where car club members outnumber car owners in major cities around the globe. Most residents of these cities will live within a five-to-ten-minute walk of a self-service Zipcar. Zipcar will be an integral part of these vibrant communities of well-informed, connected people who enjoy urban life and transportation options.

We envision a future where car club members outnumber car owners in major cities around the globe.

We will deliver on-demand mobility while leaving a small footprint on the environment—providing a great timesaving service that frees up space in our cities and puts more money in consumers’ wallets. Our leading brand will be synonymous with fun, honesty, clever innovation, and social good. Car-sharing strategies will be a requisite part of the planning for all college campuses, urban, residential, and commercial developments, and city planning agencies.

We will become a premier employer for talented, passionate people who seek to turn great ideas into a profitable, growing company while doing good for our world.

What drives us forward (pun intended) is a commitment to our core values. These values ensure that every team member from the Big Apple to Big Ben is working together to make it happen.
