You might have seen the occasional Zipcar in Charlottesville – usually they’re from the DC Metropolitan area. But now it seems that Charlottesville has their own Zipcars – 6 of ’em in fact.
It was good of UVA to have sorted out a deal with Zipcar; the Daily Progress article says the minimum age to rent is 18 and Zipcar’s site says it’s 21.
Representatives from Zipcar, a rental car service, and officials from the University’s Department of Parking and Transportation currently are communicating on a plan to bring Zipcar to the University.
Lamentably, being a Realtor in Charlottesville does not (yet) allow itself for a Zipcar + bicycle only existence.
But … if you combine a Zipcar + a bicycle + a home in Charlottesville with a relatively high Walkscore …
You might just be onto something.
