With Zipcars parked on campus and in other dedicated parking locations throughout Washington, D.C., members can reserve cars online or by phone and use their personal access card to enter and drive them. Gas, insurance, maintenance, and dedicated parking are all included in Zipcar's hourly and daily rates. Personal memberships are available to CUA students, alumni, faculty and staff.
