who else uses a car sharing company? I like it, I pay 60 dollars a year but than I can have a car whenever it's nice for big shopping trips. Like yesterday we need dirt and rocks and that's a pain to carry back from home depot so we rented a car for an hour and a half and hit up whole foods aswell. seeing as it's 200 a month for a parking space this is more economical, the car costs about 9-15 dollars an hour depending on what car you get (I usually go with something closer to the 9 dollar range) but I usually split the cost with my room mates so its like 10 dollars a person for 3 hours. which isn't bad. And where I live I don't need a car all the time, though at times it makes things easier, which is why I like zipcar. also within the fee you pay for zipcar that includes insurance and gas. If I live somewhere that a car is necessary I'll cancel my zipcar account.
