UB faculty, staff and students who need to rent a car can now obtain a vehicle through the Zipcar car-sharing service, an environmentally friendly alternative that supports UB’s Climate Action Plan and its efforts to improve campus sustainability.
The annual membership fee for members of the UB community at least 18 years of age is $35, and UB applicants receive $35 worth of free driving credit in their first month of driving. Click here to enroll in the Zipcar service.
Gas, 180 miles per day, insurance, reserved parking spots and roadside assistance are included in the hourly and daily Zipcar rates. Cars are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be reserved for as little as an hour or for up to four days. Rates on all UB vehicles start as low as $8 per hour and $66 per day (24 hours).
