Zipcar_screenshotCar sharing comes to Winston-Salem on January 20, 2010 when Wake Forest University launches the Zipcar program. The Zipcar car sharing program offers 24-hour access to vehicles when students, faculty, and staff need them. Membership in the university program is open to licensed drivers 18 years or older. The low hourly rate includes gas and insurance.

Volunteers will be available to talk with potential members about the program on January 20th in front of the Fresh Food Co. (aka The Pit) from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm.

Faculty, staff, and students of the Wake Forest campus community can apply for membership at any time on the Zipcar website. The two shared vehicles will be available for reservation on the evening of January 20th.
