A popular car sharing service has expanded to another Indiana city. Zipcar, which has locations in Indianapolis, South Bend and Bloomington, among others, is now available in Lafayette.
The city says the addition of two Zipcars located at Riehle Plaza on North 2nd Street builds on the success of the service’s location at Purdue University in West Lafayette. The service in Lafayette allows users to reserve a Honda Civic or Mitsubishi Lancer to drive around town.
"The City of Lafayette is excited to add to the transportation choices downtown. With Zipcar located at Riehle Plaza, area residents and all Lafayette citizens have multiple transportation choices for their needs from short local trips to long excursions," said Dennis Carson, economic development director for the city of Lafayette. "Zipcar car sharing joins regional transit and buses, City Bus and even bike share all of which make downtown a destination for working, living, shopping and entertainment."
Lafayette joins dozens of communities throughout the country to offer the service, including Indiana University in Bloomington, Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame and Valparaiso University. You can learn more about the program by clicking here.
