Zipcar has announced that it now has more than million members with operations in more than 500 cities and towns in eight countries across the globe.
The mobility company provides on-demand access to a variety of cars in hundreds of cities, as well as colleges and university campuses throughout eight countries in North America and in Europe.
Zipcar’s annual member survey revealed that nearly 10% of members get rid of a car after joining, and 32% would have purchased a vehicle without the presence of Zipcar.
As a result of Zipcar’s global membership in eight countries, more than 413,000 vehicles are not on city streets, significantly reducing the potential congestion and parking challenges in the over 500 cities and towns in which Zipcar operates.
Nicholas Cole, president Zipcar International, said: “For the past 16 years Zipcar has been driven by its vision of a world where car sharers outnumber car owners.
“While we’re pleased to have hit the million member milestone, Zipcar views success by the collective impact our community of a million members have had on the globe. With less cars on the road, cities can build more green space, reduce parking and congestion challenges and overall create a better place to live.”
