Campus Car-Sharing Programs Expanded

December 15, 2011

In response to student demand, Penn’s Department of Transportation and Parking has been working with Zipcar and PhillyCarShare to increase carsharing options on campus. Zipcar, the world's largest car sharing service, recently increased their campus fleet total to eight with the addition of four cars, which can be rented by the hour or by the day. PhillyCarShare, is progressing with plans to install charging stations at campus lots that will serve to re-charge four new Chevy Bolts being added to their program in the upcoming semester. For more information about car-sharing programs available on Penn’s campus, visit the Transit Services website.


2013 marks the fifth year in a row that Penn has received the Tree Campus USA® designation, awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation.
