Zipcar at Hampshire College

Since 2010 Hampshire College has worked in partnership with Zipcar Inc., providing the campus with access to the world’s leading car-sharing service. The cost-effective and convenient transportation option is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all students, faculty, and staff members, ages 18 and older, and to community members over the age of 21.

Gas, insurance, reserved parking spots, up to 180 miles per day, and roadside assistance are included in the hourly and daily Zipcar rates. Cars can be reserved for as short as an hour or for up to four days.

The annual membership fee for anyone affiliated with Hampshire College is $35 and Hampshire applicants receive $35 worth of free driving credit that applies towards their first month of driving. Rates on all Hampshire vehicles start as low as $8 per hour and $66 per day (24 hours).

Cars are self-service; they can be easily reserved and accessed 24 hours a day. Hampshire College Zipcars are located in convenient spaces in high-demand areas. Two vehicles are located by the bus circle between Franklin Patterson Hall and the Robert Crown Center.

Zipcar members from Hampshire, Amherst, and Smith Colleges ages 18-20 have access to the combined 11 vehicles on all three campuses, while Zipcar members 21 and older have access to Zipcar’s network of more than 8,000 vehicles across North America and the UK.
