New Member Benefits – Hubway (bikes) and Zipcar Discounts
Boston Society of Landscape Architects has teamed up with Zipcar. If you don’t own a car (and don’t want to!), or own one car but have occasional need for a second car, consider joining Zipcar. Through our sponsored account you can receive a discount on Zipcar application and membership fees.
Zipcar’s rates make using Zipcar much less expensive than owning a private car because you pay only for what you use.
Zipcar pays for
- gas and insurance,
- maintains the vehicles, and
- provides designated parking.
Zipcar provides 24/7 access to great new cars without the hassles of owning one.
To learn more about Zipcar, please visit their website at http://members.zipcar.com.
